Roundel on a Sonnet by Marilyn Hacker
Kathleene West

We need more boozy women poets,

I read. The whiskey blurs, confuses me near enough to accepting it, 

but first--we need more booze.

 

And then, define the crucial word. To booze:

drinking to excess, and there we've set 

the standard to join our Muse 

of bourbon-in-hand women poets, reciting sonnets 

 

in colorful bars, and not just sonnets, 

but bawdy patoums and tough lyrics--to lose 

'poetess' forever, but Hell--we don't need more poets 

of any kind. We need more booze.
