Waiting For That Strong Woman
By John Ogden
Calidae, sweet Calidae
I have built us a home.
The meal is cooked and warm yet,
The wood is cut, the hearth hot,
The fire built, stoked.
Put down your hammer, sweet Calidae
Set aside your swords, your armor
Just for a moment, just long enough
For me to kiss you,
To show the woman I love
Just how much
She and her trade mean

John Ogden was conceived of a government form and a passing mailbox. He lives somewhere out in the woods of a rural land more akin to the fantasy realms of literature than real life, and his favorite dirt bikes will always be the broken ones.
