body as magic

Photo by Sunsetoned on Pexels.com
this body stays rooted

in small hands that

keep it from swaying


this body bathes 

in milk and blood 

earthy sustenance 


it breaks barriers

without movement


it shapeshifts 

cat or lioness 


it offends by

simply existing 


this body is a witch 


this body gives life 

to the mouths that 

shape the world
