I have been woman
for a long time
beware my smile
I am treacherous with old magic
and the moon’s new fury
Rather than write a lot about this offering from Audre Lorde, I am going to leave the image with you and let it rummage around in *your* head. To me this is a “pre-image” poem, one that requires us to feel into it, not nail it down with letters and punctuation.
