Cut and Slice


Cut and slice

Stitch- up and out

Away with

The very heart

Of her the child

Caught within

The murderous

Constraints of time

And place of ways

Such games of us

To find her bud

And rip it up

And out discarded

Like a dirty rag

Her womanhood

Before it could

Empower her in

Blush and come

So ready ripe and full

Herself in bloom

And flood of rushing

Blood which opens wide

Her becoming

Of the self in thrall

Of her magnificence

The beating birth

Into her awakening

Discovery of life’s embrace
