SONNET FOR SILVIA FEDERICI by Anne Boyer

HOW DO WE COLLECTIVIZE REPRODUCTIVE LABOR?
IS THE FAMILY ENOUGH FOR YOU?
IS THE COUPLE ENOUGH FOR YOU?
WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE OLD OR INFIRM?

WHAT STANDS BETWEEN YOU AND THE COMMUNE?
WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE IF YOU HAD WHAT YOU NEEDED?
WHAT IS OURS?
HOW TO GET IT?

HOW TO LIVE LIKE ELEPHANTS WITH ARCHITECTURE?
HOW MANY CHILDREN WOULD YOU CARE FOR IF THEY DIDN’T
HAVE TO BE YOURS?
HOW MANY MOTHERS, SISTERS, BROTHERS, and LOVERS WOULD
YOU LOVE IF THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO BE YOURS?

HOW DO WE END THE TRAGEDY OF OUR ATOMIZATION?
HOW DO WE END THE TRAGEDY?
