Mirror of Medusa
Belittled and ghost lighted to retreat
Into a malevolent night.
We resurface to claim our right,
Our power to fight;
Against the patriarchal blight
That boxed and blinded our light.
Who is the monster and what does it reflect?
Medusa or mirror the male instead.
He did destroy all potential of Her
Except the enticement in the danger of beauty.
