This is Just a Fairy Tale By Jane Ransom

And it’s for the ladies:
Beside Moses, a basket-case, Miriam
Waits. In the bull rushes.
Off with her outfit, and she’s Europa
Getting it backwards
from Zeus.—Moses or Minos, Mary or Pasiphae,
It’s the same rosy girl, same snow-white bull
Reforming, never reformed, remanifested
In each manifesto. Some guy always takes her.
Jesus or Jung or Mao Tse Tung. Let’s memorize
mesmerization, study the angles as well as angels;
Let’s fall apart and together like Tinkerbell Toys—
Come on, girls!—Let’s abandon those boys.
