A Woman’s Place in the Dictionary

In the Oxford English dictionary, the word “woman” is defined as an adult human female. The word immediately before it is “woma” meaning a brownish-grey Australian python found in sandy desert areas. The entry after “woman” is “womb.”

And so in an English dictionary a woman finds herself / between a snake and a part of her own body.
