i am her

Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet

toward home, a land that I have never seen

I am changing less and less asleep

made of different stuff than when I began…

It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
