Naked bodies in the earth

I live with a vigorous warmth in me
That touches to the body of the world
and bleed with it
and sweat with it
A vigorous hunger to be together to dive into each other’s invisible eyes
And swim with the slippery tensions that wrap around us.
I live with a tornado in me
It breeds life in red and in white and in black
With a sharp shining.
I live like so many women have lived
And so many of those women are buried alive with the hands of men.
The idea of justice might get lost in the labyrinths of reasoning
But what are we left without it above the ground?
Murderous hands pacing upon the earth
That has accepted the bodies of women
Laying still with those vigorous tornadoes.
