Feminist drawing – ‘Myregret’

“Myregret” is a play on the artwork “La Grande Guerre” (The Great War circa 1964); by surrealist artist René Magritte. As did Magritte, I have place the focus of the story in the face. Digital Art drawing, 20wide cms x 25 high cms Circa 2018. 

Dedicated to Germaine Greer

My name has a roughness,
uncouth by some
often feared.

People see me at different events
dressed differently.
I have many hats.
I have no religion;
no title
I am landless.

The strange thing is I am sowing seeds
they are sprouting,
growing
replicating.

Unidentifiable.
You cannot locate me,
Or box me.

You think you know me.
I cannot be known
For then I may be owned.

I will defy you at every turn.
I cannot be understood.
You don’t understand.
You cannot hold me.
I am more than equal
My name is Feminism
