“Women”

Drowned.

Burned.

Because of their power,
incredible force the world was afraid of.

A tribe of one rib,
one breast.

With a scream planted in a mouth by God.

For the pain cannot be left unsaid.

If you open your wings
to the wind we blow into it,
do not close your ears to
the words it carries.
