Miniature Goddess of Earth by Sesheshet

Miniature Goddess of Earth by sesheshet

accompanying poem:

Will you
hang
my eyes
on your cave
of black Aztec ribbons,
guilded Greek thoughts,
and masks of man—
headed birds?

Will you
bind
my rock hands
with wire,
and the souls
of the previous lost—
waiting for nature
to bleed
out
my
feet?

Will you
wish me
with moments
and
flesh off the bone,
beating pulse
through my cosmos
of stone?

I have hung
my birth
like a goddess
of ocher and full-belly char
inside the blink
of Sun’s eye,

where I
can see
only me
through the dark
storm of dreams,
haunting
like snowflakes,
forbidden
to be
touched.

Look at me:

I Am
your shadow—
immortal,
and worthy
of
More.
