What Do Women Want?

I want a red dress. I want it flimsy and cheap, I want it too tight, I want to wear it until someone tears it off me.

I want it sleeveless and backless, this dress, so no one has to guess what's underneath.

I want to walk down the street past Thrifty's and the hardware store with all those keys glittering in the window, past Mr. and Mrs. Wong selling day-old donuts in their café, past the Guerra brothers slinging pigs from the truck and onto the dolly, hoisting the slick snouts over their shoulders.

I want to walk like I'm the only woman on earth and I can have my pick.

I want that red dress bad.

I want it to confirm your worst fears about me, to show you how little I care about you or anything except what I want.

When I find it, I'll pull that garment from its hanger like I'm choosing a body to carry me into this world, through the birth-cries and the love-cries too, and I'll wear it like bones, like skin, it'll be the goddamned dress they bury me in.
- Poem by Kim Addonizio

Women like silent men.
They think they're listening.
- Marcel Achard

The two women exchanged
the kind of glance women
use when no knife is handy.
- Ellery Queen
