for Persephone, on the Equinox

Persephone,my love
Take me with you to the underworld
Help me to see the darkness that is mine
... and to be at peace with my mysteries
Hold me in your arms while I cry
tears the color of pomegranate seeds
Tell me the stories I tried to forget
that I may see my self within them
and honor the one who survived
Remind me that after night comes day
in the never-ending spiraling of time
Teach me to stand in balance
between the dark and light of my self
and the world around me
Persephone, my love
make me whole

Women Walk The Night

Women walk the night
Talking with shadows
Buzzing grey in their heads
Their limbs like gnarled trees
Convulsing with the earth’s pulse

Their faces in the moon
Bile in their mouths
Women with teeth locked like gates
On the names of the dead

They walk in black robes
Inside bodies too small
Carving children from bones
Barely clothed in flesh

Women walk the night
Listening to voices
In boxes with blue-lit screens
A holocaust of pictures flashing
Victims, emissaries of desire

Their arms outstretched
Fingers reaching for things lost
Like fragments of melodies
Garlands of lights blinking

Women walk the night
Prisoners of war, in single file
Marching to the enemy’s camp
To sleep with soldiers
To save their skins

Singing their resistance
Singing their resistance
Singing their resistance
Until their voices
Are finally heard.
