a million steel horses
deep into the depths
uncovering that that lay rotting
men made condoms
seas of unrest- a part of our beginnings.
and god made men
that which birthed herself.
this morning i woke up beside you.
smiling and listening to Minnie Riperton
and i came
to my feet
pulling you up to dance
and i heard a small hum in my gut
and i smiled again
knowing it was you.
