i stare at sisters that have fought to exist in arms of evolution
just so they can see her-story in classifieds

the hollow of tombs riding on hinged gates to cancel back allies
examining obsessions of themselves as second class citizens

at the finger-tips of husbands, no voice, cleaning pots,
triple load with babies, the flash backward tangled thorns

of a well mannered youth, living elegiac slurs
caught in the lines between the mattress, the silver lining—their right to choose

re-furbished, blank eyes, crossed, licking lips
to the sun crumbs, pacing, pacifist to abide their husbands

in ceremonies, voided, stripping , cargo, being girl,
holding tongues, missing womanhood into teddies

tucking tummy in at night, for the perfect hour glass,
she, like the dint of ideal wings, frigid gowns sliver to her knees

she seeks therapy for her soul, un locking lipped passion,
in restraint for a thousand years

it is time for the return of the goddess the gold lining—her right to choose this life
