not sure about this tbh


September 19, 2018

the earth is a brown woman -
skin cracking under mountains and trees
hills borne of curves in her waist
her legs

in your dreams
her belly is swollen -
no man has touched her
but she carries her daughters
beneath her river-blood veins

they said that brown girls don't get to rule the world
she responds 
teeth bared
eyes wide
i am the world
