This poem was born from a challenge to get myself to write a poem in under 150 characters. It was a challenge for sure! I use the story of 女媧, who created all humankind in Chinese mythology, as a way to talk about feminism while still tying it to culture and tradition. Feedback is greatly appreciated and welcomed!

break me, open, reshape, even 
女媧 is not exempt from men.
betel-nut fingers make what’s hers
his don’t fight it.
sun-dried 黄河 mud, hit the ground,
hard, like he hits
me, don’t worry clay is soft, nothing will be 
dislodged,
your memories don’t count.
