The Need for Renewal
didn’t used to be so difficult.
30, renewal was everywhere,
women marching in the streets,
Back the Night,
back their bodies,
back their souls,
your head, pick up a sign,
you are safe in the dark,
only for a night, we knew in that short
parentheses of our daily lives
we were surrounded and lifted up
hundreds of sisters,
Army of Lovers that could not fail – but
fail, but seem to fade away
we acquired our own singular bravery.
with metal piercings and graffitied with tattoos,
fearlessly into the streets.
have no need to “come out”
were born out.
old paradigm has shifted,
we, the bright, young, system crashing First Wave
sunk back into the homogeneous warm sea of humanity
brought us so alive at their age.
know what I know and my tired back was a bridge
this generation of women.

we sought justice and equality for our sex?
it’s not the way of a revolution,
back can cause accidents,
traveling at this speed.
