She said 

His eyes went to gray 

She said 

he always had an answer

She said ….

He portioned her out 

Body and soul 

He cut the cards

And she bet her life…

She fought the devil 

And talked to God 

She said…

She played the Ace of Spades.

You are not a muse

not a destination 

not a definition 

You are a woman 

Full blood 


That run thicker

And hotter 

than the earth at its core 

Your eyes have galaxies 

And your heart is the pulse

To the tide in the sea

Touching everything 

And it’s ok 

You are a woman

Flesh and blood
