Not Your Garden And Other Poems

Not Your Garden 

You are not

entitled

to pick flowers

from someone

else’s garden,

uninvited

even if they are

displayed

for the world

to see.

————————

Purity

Purity;

a dirty little

word that keeps

half the world

in chains.

————————

Flowers and Silence

That flower between

your legs bares

king and peasant,

writer and artisan,

healer and soothsayer,

yet still they have

the audacity to

silence you.
