When women share their stories with other women

When women share their stories with other women

When women share their stories with other women 1920 1367 Jane Williams

Dust falls from crystal balls
everywhere. Empty fields
signed beware of the bull
call out memory’s bluff
as one by one old selves
old beliefs are drawn forth
shrugged off not without
compassion. A window box
over the Atlantic encourages
bees and daydreams. White hair
sings in streaks of peated whisky.
When women share their stories
with other women greyscale lifts
from the world’s face revealing
borders crossed and re-crossed
a chroma of micro gravity
spherical candle flames
the gaze returned in kind
in renewed and fearless
recognition.
