Beyond The Poem

I parted with that dubious

Doll with the eye

Tracking me 

From the sky

— bearded, vindictive

white male.

Overwhelmed

by patriarchal greed

work more

for less

while the ones reaping

the glory play golf.

I petitioned for respect.

The sacred planet

obviously female

giving, birthing, creating

deserving glory.

I found the shop

selling Gaia statues

and I rejoiced

because deep in resistance

you support what you fight;

your battles are on their terms.

Now this daily

And nightly

Immersion into a 

Melody

Transcending time

Revealing space

as the Construct

necessary for this Conversation.

What is

Unspoken

Interwoven through bones

Sparking through genes.

Recycled Dinosaurs

All of us

Stunned

In recognition.

What is truly sacred

So far beyond deserving

And worth,

Singing into the realm

Of belonging.

Are you here?

Then you do.

Resounding when I give

My most precious gift:

My authentic 

NO.

And all of the excluded pieces

Shamed, terrorized,

Crawl out cautiously

Or wave White Flags

half-heartedly

until the First Notes

Signaling the Beginning

Of this orchestral suite

reveal

My complicated

Incredibly simple

Song

Created in the space of WE.

Inspired by:  Dubious, Overwhelm, Shop, Melody.

 

I just reached 47,000 words on my #nanowrimo writing.  So inspired!
