monthly sacrifice

Breasts swollen
Nipples tender
Uterus overripe and shedding
blood down my thighs

Standing naked, feeling hazy
I pour water over ice and listen
Steaming water fills my bath
1500 milligrams of midol in the last hour
begins to dim the
piercing pain within my uterus

Alone in my space
Alone in the rawness
Alone but connected to all,
we are, all we hold

The power of blood
Being woman
Shedding, spreading, dripping creation
