Un-Silenced

 

Lips pierced silent

By the razor wire that contained her.

That threatens,

Ohio February gray perpetual

To once again contain her

By dint of infraction

Real or twisted-patriarchy imagined

 

Voice

Booming resonance of her lived truth

The power to blow back

Encroaching fog of incipient annihilation

Types urgent as impotent

Wind-spitting upon

Beloved house afire

 

Testifies

In anonymous verse
