Chiro Treatment #9

Chiro Treatment #9

in which your heroine
forgets to breathe
because the pain
shocks into
overwhelmed gasp

in which your heroine
and her mind
her being
is only shouting

fuck you
fuck you denver police
fuck you
get the fuck out of my body

rage in shockwaves
agents of deathempire
get the fuck out

thanatos running through
my muscle fibers
keeping me tied up
handcuffed in spirit

but i choose the n'shamah
the cold cup of water
the embrace of community
the stance out of place
the fierceness

and i tell you this,
empire of death:
you do not get to have me.
you do not get to have my faith, my trust.
and absolutely
you do not get to have my body.


  1. wow! powerful writing... important words of truth: your faith, your trust, your body is your own.

  2. thank you. And thanks for stopping by!

  3. Words thin in the grip of pain, but fwiw,
    Si Kahn, via Dick Gaughan:

    you win

  4. Thanks for that clip, stray. Wise words.

  5. That's a real bam between the eyes piece of writing. Imagine if we could all speak our truth out loud.

  6. aie, friend. I hurt when I read that. prayers for your healing.


Howdy and thanks for looking in the window. Glad to have your comments here, just please remember to be kind.
