safe space

Reclaiming this body as safe space.

It will not house the legacies

of silence and oppression

that came before me.

There is no room

for the cruelty of my mind

to prey on my body.

I will tend this fire in my belly.

I will speak with my serpent tongue.

You will know

the flavor of my essence

the scent of my bloom

the depth of

my devotion

my power

my holy rage

my sex

my love.

I will accept nothing less

than a full descent

into the living embodiment

of all of me.
