Where do they find
the girls with calm eyes
and quiet voices?

They must be manufactured
at a processing plant
where the mundane prevails.
Men trade in the fiery models
writing comments like
“too opinionated”
“inadequate domestic skills”
or
“displays too much cleavage”
to complete the exchange.

The sirens get sent off
to the Amazon and
howl deliciously at the moon
while the girls with calm eyes
and quiet voices
retreat into oblivion.
