my magic is unwritten
but when the sea turns back
it will leave my shape behind.

gut-sprung on police wheels
a cablegram nailed to the wood

moving away from me
beyond anger or failure

I am fourteen
and my skin has betrayed me

From the House of Yemanjá

My mother had two faces and a frying pot
where she cooked up her daughters
into girls
before she fixed our dinner.

From the earth's inside.
There are many kinds of open.
