Poem for my Ancestors: Zearing Iowa

I’d be mistaken to think that re-aligning my spine were as easy as standing up straight. As if depression were cured by medication, and not dancing. As if the future existed separately from the past.

I am the Double Headed Serpent.

I am the Double Headed Serpent.  My name is your birth and your death.  I am the cervix you arrived through and the tunnel of white light through which you’ll leave.  I am the mouth that suckles breastmilk, and the anus that fertilizes the soil. My one face is your sex, and the other is […]
