How do you be a good wife and remain your own person independent of your title as wife?

A Berry Modern Query

Upon my birth I was pushed

into a hole because of the one between my legs

left to rise, break glass ceilings

without a way to climb.

So given the chance

to escape this pit

I'm grasping vines

I'm grasping vines made of aprons and neckties

slowly on my way to baking blue ribbon pies

filled with strawberries

Or blueberries

Or raspberries

Or blackberries

So many berries,

So many berries, enough to make a jam

a berry modern query -

How to be a good wife

without conforming to stale gender rolls

baked with a taste of misogyny -

How do I even begin to combine

How do I even begin to combine domesticity and feminist pride

How do I even begin to combine domesticity and feminist pride when I'm so deep in the divide

How do I even begin to combine domesticity and feminist pride when I'm so deep in the divide between homemaker and life maker?
