Fire and Transformation…

fire into blossom
flame into petal
transformation begins like this:
don’t believe what
they tell you
when their story is based
on your impoverishment
and supplication
when they stand to benefit
from your smallness
your lack of sovereignty
your complicity with shame
they may light the pyre
but remember, dear woman,
your spine is full of witch light
and your soul is phoenix wing
where they seek to destroy,
you seek to transform
leave a blessing
where there was burn
take wing take sky
blaze a trail
where once there was
stick match smoke
now there is
flaming petal
smoldering bloom
the wide garden sky
alight with possibility

-Angi Sullins
