Statue Stand-Off

 Sonnet for a Statue, Wall Street

This poem is now published in the chapbook Muse in a Suitcase

Here's the backstory: the "Fearless Girl" statue by Kristen Visbal was installed March 7, 2017 as a representation of the need for more leadership by women in the financial industry. It faces the "Raging Bull" statue, whose sculptor has asked for its removal so that his art doesn't appear chauvinistic, according to recent news.
