An Intrinsic Exquisite


and, if the possibilities are:


it's obvious I'm not male: my breasts are way too big, my mouth too mouthy, my nurturing energy way too flowing

and no one would allow that someone this opinionated could be considered neuter

so, by a process of elimination, I must be a woman

but, you know, not just from a process of negativity, but from a positive reaching

I can tell you I am a woman

I am this woman
who grew up this way
who's been raped
many, many times
who has overcome
maybe just about
every kind of humiliation
and failure
a person can endure
and still I am a woman
born and raised myself
still raising myself and being born

and one servant is never enough

I can smell the


wildness on me
