Gravity

Elizabeth Stansberry

She came in,
tigerīs teeth chattered.
She never asked for
This Gravity.
Some women were born
To
move shadows
and harness lightening.
Some women were born
To
Be Alone
On a pedestal
In the middle
Of
The high desert
Speaking tongues
And
Taming snakes.
This woman.
She was born
To
Hold magic in her mouth.
Do not conjure
That
Muse.
