damage control

I know a man
who lives outside
the bounds of marriage 
all the while claiming
loyalty to his wife.

Warrior Woman by Peter Gaumond

No blade can excise
your fierce femininity,
no illness
withstand the cleansing
of your tears.
Wounds are swallowed
in the embrace
of your openness.
Sing forth my priestess
of transformation.
