Rough Draft, Rewritten

she was squiggled

by Levitical scribes

in the margins

of King’s magnum opus

superfluous character


female circumcised

scrawled bloody ink

onto antiquated crumbling

scalp-skinned scrolls

they ran her story arc

through the bludgeoning gauntlet

marathon from Leviathan

footbound in golden buds

until fanged horcrux


drizzled sibylline venom

lotus flowered fuchsia

reclaimed labia majora

herstory leapt


from archaic tome

foliage riots

in incendiary protest
