We Are by Celia Turner

Poem

A susurration of voices,
all women speaking
in a multitude of languages

Some stuck yet
repeating only
what men want of us—

the impossible,
leaving us
forever in lack.

Other women
whispering, a vortex
shouting, spiraling us up, up.

We are we are we are
we are we are we
are we are we are.
