Narrative (15/30)

Since the sister, Eve, was in the Garden, 

women's autonomy has been dangerous. 

Even in this century

got folks thinking a "yes"

means "optional" or "I guess".

Mama Eve, tell your daughters:

did you have a say  

in the way that you've 

been portrayed? 


Who's to say Mama Eve's not whispering wisdom to us, her sistren

in the ache of the cursed cramps monthly contracting within?

She warns:

Serpents stalk in gardens, churches--for their benefit and prerogative. 

So, daughters, always speak and control your own damn narrative.
