Still. Born. Rising.

This rage of mine is so precious and irrefutable

I'm gonna hold each of her incarnations up
to the constellations like a 1977 mini-series

Weep Clutch my inner arms so the scars don't show
Call her true name out during my day sleep

Hold her fists until she walks alone away Wipe
my eyes Witness the devestating results of her natural

wake
