What belongs to a woman? If it weren’t denied/ flushed pulsing with the hysteria of abortion rights, suicide, and coat hangers.
A long walk home, to gain a portion liberty if not liberty then our mothers who sat in lunch counters, awaiting a chance to be served, and rode on buses to spare her an ounce of dignity, for how far we’ve walked in the silence of tomorrow.
Deployed in war zones which should have been our bodies – it should be holy, undefiled like the sanctuary, on eve of sunrise morning,
and tell the world what belong to a woman’s body is her right to choose.
