Revolution and The Naked Truth

Part I

me, two years ago

Lady Godiva

on a horse

galloping naked

through the towns

screaming for

Revolution

insisting on

Revolution

swallowing

and spitting

Revolution

 

for surgeons knives

to turn into

healing hands

and supine spines

to rise unto

powerful knees

for numb wombs

to invoke

martial law

and doctor’s words

to become

incantation

for this divine

Revolution

 

because those tubes

and needles

in my spine

and hand

and bladder

flowed only

with the elixir

of tears

and fear

and lingering

endorphins

elixer enough

to momentarily

paralyze the

Revolution

 

my scar

the scarlett letter

and now

i’ll always be

an acronym

in their eyes

Very

Beautiful

And

Courageous?

Vigilantly

Birthing

Against

Convention?

 

onward

this

Revolution

rolls
