Poem

If we are the body of God
My place is the genitalia
Between black and brown thighs
Where the chaos of creation and birthing resides
I am the mouth of a python
The birthplace of freshwater
The formation of body clay
If I am the child of a snake
Then I am the voice of shamanic spirits
The laughter of old womxn holding spears
