The S-Word

Category: Poetry/Lyrics

We’ve all been a slut at one time or another -
To a stranger; an older brother;
a friend; a so-called sister;
a man who counts conquests on his fingers.
I’ve met
Old sluts.
Young sluts.
Too-young-to-even-know-what-“slut”-means-sluts.
Virginal sluts.
Slut-because-of-her-slutty-top-sluts.
Slut-because-of-her-slutty-skirt-sluts.
Slut-because-of-her-slutty-shoes-sluts.
Sluts in fishnet tights.
Sluts in knee-length skirts.
Pregnant sluts, nauseous in waiting-room chairs.
Sluts with bruises, or smeared lipstick and torn clothes.
Sluts who fuck to forget.
Sluts who fuck to feel beautiful.
Sluts who
just
really
like
sex.
Slut. Slag. Slapper. Skank.
They’re just small s-words, pricking the skin.
Keep your head up.
Don’t let the wolves in.

  • Ha ha, thank you. I feel like I should confess, I stole the last line from a Neko Case song.

  • I like it! Regardless of whether or not you like the word, it definitely packs a punch here!

  • This is a compelling reminder of destructive attitudes and how much we all suffer from it. I can’t think of a single female I have ever met, including little girls, who do not already know this word too well.  Bravo!
