    The thing with stepping out alone is
    I want to keep walking alone
    The storm took so much
    I presumed when on the other side
    I would regroup
    Tonight it feels like I have no village,
    no tribe & am seeking a resolute
    that would quake the last piece of earth
    beneath me.
    Yet free my wings & feet.
    But to spread my wings now
    would call “la chasse”
    When I feel like a sitting duck.

    Can I wean those who I nurse
    Will they come to no longer need
    Could they love me enough too
    This disappointment is so great
    It drills into my pelvic grate
    And I can’t feel the fire here
    any more.
    My wounds fester & j am
    treated like the court jester.
    I was naked in a public place.
    No one offered me a robe
    I bared all & was made to feel
    so small, I could have slid
    down the gutter there and then
    My body now causes me to
    feel the remnants of uninvited men
    this somatic won’t shift out of
    automatic.
    The pain is really debilitating.
    And still I rise
