Feminist haiku? How could I resist! Mookychick are running a new competition for feminist-themed flash pieces.

Here’s a recent poem I wrote while thinking about the male gaze and how people whom I don’t know have responded to my profile photo on facebook. I intend to write some more fresh flash and/or haiku especially for this event, but in the meantime, I thought this one was pretty relevant.

How Do I Look?

my face is a blank
so how will you mark it?
eyes shine hard as glass

 

This is an entry for the Mookychick blogging competition, FEMINIST FLASH FICTION 2011. Enter now.

I really look forward to seeing other people’s entries for this comp. Promise you’ll send me a link if you write something?
