A clever write, and such a mind stirring verses with philosophical analogy to deal with. If you touch with Sappho I may act like Sappho with my reason about this. I think you are not just begotten from the viscid kaolinite ( viscous clay )
and formed by the Sculptures but you are begotten through conceptual process by the spermatocytes and gametophytes from the vivaporous animals ( human being is included in that category ) as your parents are one of them and blessed by God having you as a child, a wonderful, splendid and smart person as you are now. But if it will be with the other meaning of Sapphic of which you are voicing it out. Well I think I have to tell my sister who is with the same gender as you are implying ( to no offense please) as she claimed that she's a male gender like me, but I said she's not. And, befriend you, maybe you can understand each other then. LOL !
Sorry if this is like too much to deal with, I only touched the subject. Thanks for sharing this poem, and I shared only my personal opinion.

Masterful write, exquisitely blurring the line between duality. I always am drawn to works with a little science embedded within. Perhaps all women are really Calcium Phosphate based, ivory variations of bones. :) Good write!

Perhaps:) Thank you for reading my work, Rocans.
I a Mothers only son...borne and raised by a family of Women, held me to a path walking with sensitivity and strength of a women, in the body of a man, forever this has been a curse and a blessing...knowledge gained from looking deeper, but alienated from many men for being softer than normal Lol...to this day I have more Women friends than men...a strong pondering write this is...i like the Uniqueness painted of Yourself...understanding ones walk is hard enough, how You are in turn viewed by others is constant battle and humans unusual evil of judgement...make it more of the reason to ignore many among us!!!
excellent Write Maryanne You dig deep from the ink well!!!

Indeed-Thank You for penning it!!!
Family discussion of such subject matter would remain awkward. There's still that silent policy of don’t ask don’t tell among the families. Amazing and subtle way to discuss a socially relevant issue Maryanne.

" Women aren't made from the rib of man, they are crafted from delicate stars and the intricate dust of a thousand possible galaxies; and it only takes another person to uncover this. "
Merriments aside, you have the diction of an every-day person speaking from a sophisticated standpoint. Where your mind takes you would have to be exquisite, and even if you were to be placed in a filthy slum, you'd find it heavenly, in a intellectual manner. Lovely, I daresay, lovely..

exactly...woman made from the rib of man...the rib is inside not out.

inner beauty is what counts...strength, wisdom and sense of humor...this makes a woman sexy...not the outer frills...
quite good vocabulary in this one..

You're philosophical brilliance my sweetie.
Each time I came back for this piece,
I see new insights.... I needed to let it land
Totally inside me...

I do love the way you name your Aunt, and Uncle.
(Family is that important) and how they see us.

Your title caught me so much interest, as it is a brilliant poetic form.
Then linked back to your words, makes this extra special,
You dear, have such a way with words... Uncle Alfred is right,
You're world-class. Your humble personality, on the end, is tipicly you
still wondering... that's what Uncle meant with, noble metal, :) and your perfect
imperfection (or so I think) :)

This one goes into my library, you made my day! with it!

- With love,
Elisa

I dare say your exquisite, beautiful, brilliant nature is fathomless. Your extraordinary voice is both harmony and melody; life in its most vibrant colors.

Your review is more poetic that the poem itself, I'd say:) Thank you for the wonderful words..

You have an alluring way with words. A delight to read, over and over. :)
Outer beauty is always a factor, but inner beauty truly counts. That being said, I'll admit I don't really get all of this piece--I'm not a woman, so I don't know how to perceive it accurately. (Only a fool thinks that a woman's words mean the same thing to him that they do to her.) Anyways, nice poem
