This city unfolds along a watery spine. Small fishing hooks dip into the water from both sides, and white birds rest among the waves.
The five year old, the nine year old, the teenager, /
the woman remembers /
fist flurry against the dog /
fist thunder around her skull …
Thou shalt not tolerate the bullshit of man
Thou shalt bare nipples in response to shame
Thou shalt release the clitoris from captivity
