I see women all around me
The chain is not invisible anymore
The one that bonded me to my
Feminine ancestors
and spiritually connected me to my future daughters
They are here in front of me
on this damasked Queen size bed
Mucha’s morning and evening sisters
Entranced by the dawn
Enchanted by the night
Hang before me
A wicked eve holds the collective green
apple
and Siouxsie hugs Robert Smith on my right–
Ave Maria church bells ring–
But the milk that has collected between my breasts
and rests between your chest and mine
as you finally nurse from my left
I’m reminded that I am all women
Not just surrounded by
but within
all mothers
sisters
daughters
grandmothers
Tears and sweat
give food to brethren–
Yesterday
Forever
And
Always–
