there’s this goddess i know
goes about all bra hanging out
hooks and eyes wild
her face the face of everyone
i have ever known
she is so close
Mother i call her
Sister i call her
i call her Kali Ma
her eyes look love
and her eyes look love
and then they don’t
whirling on a sandal
she is a pint size fury with a belly like a watermelon
smashes puppets up against the wall
flicks her hair incites a riot
she is the blood drinking screaming queen of the dance
she is the alpha and the omega
she is the everything and the nothing.
one time when she forgot to put on knickers
and sat down crosslegged opposite
i was blinded:
and for a nano (heartattack-exquisite)
i remembered:
i could remember everything i had ever forgotten.
