"Pandemic" refers almost always to a widespread disease. So she's evidently referring to a woman who is a widespread disease. Maybe "Typhoid Mary"? Who knows? If you're a lunatic, I guess the best thing to do is just call yourself a "poet" and hope people don't notice.

Yes, that's how I always understood it -- more widespread than an epidemic. (Maybe this poet thinks that being a woman is catching?)
But I can't even think of a similar word that this so-called "poet" might have meant.
