What Do Women Want?
I want a red dress.
I want it flimsy and cheap,
I want it too tight,
I want to wear ituntil 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 god damned dress they bury me in.

This one's pretty self-explanatory..
