under cover diva
just now opening-my-soul
pushing through thick skin
i was raised to be a feminist
on the summit hills of evolution
wrestle free or live, zombie
bitten nail shaken

lip service,
statue of wagged tongues-goddess
my bondage wrapped my v closed
over tin wrap and pills
one by one tied in bitter portraits

i am the abomination of quick sands gone rough
sucked by the vortex of my soul,
on fire

i am the black solitude penny pincher
begging money-white page-blue page Christian rutabaga
homeless-shelter-walk one mile for food-saint

i spit out, given- any thing
punching bag
of no returns
don't answer when he calls
don't turn back

here is your mark of the beast,
this purplish bruise on your belly where
your love child is missing-empty

i am an under cover diva to the 5th power

feel- is- aftermath
the gritty taste of blood

why do i return
