    Make your selection please...
    is what you're instructed
    to do and we haven't figured
    out yet why this is important
    for them to know, or even
    for who...
    it's listed on applications,
    surveys, and many questionnaires
    Mr. Mrs. Ms. Miss
    choose one
    circle one
    mark one -or-
    check one
    why is it relevant
    what's this an inidcation of
    do you ever wonder
    or ask yourself why
    these prefixes even exist
    what you often select
    tells others
    a piece of your life
    history, and
    to know--they insist...
    -when-
    Mr. got married to
    single female Ms.
    she then became the Mrs.
    Mr. and Mrs. had a young
    daughter and now she's
    considered little Miss
    Mr. doesn't ever really
    change - so what's the diff-er-ence
    unless he
    chooses Mister
    which is a mystery
    but it's what he could be
    if he's creepin'
    with his Mistress outside
    a 10 year marriage to the Mrs.
    but who really cares?
    the labels are used to describe
    us, but I don't want to
    be defined, don't need nobody
    knowing pieces of who I am or
    anything about my life
    So I Don't
    check one
    circle one
    mark one -or-
    choose one
    Just leave the **** thing blank
    ...as if I didn't notice
    because this is
    a case of T.M.I ~
    Too-Much-Information...
    so sorry I didn't complete
    the form adequate/correct/ly -
    I'm not interested in
    sharing anything other
    than what
    I want you
    to know
    about me

    the question is male influenced

    with Ms such & such the boss figure he could make a move

    with Mrs such & such he knows the situation

    i mean i don't know but the point is well made

    Mr. Mrs. Ms. Miss...its all the same...
    Just a title without a name.
    Taking ownership of our true identity.

    I'm definitely feeling this. Give me more.
