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.
