Blue Dragon - SHE

Blue Dragon - SHE


SHE

I began...

The room dissolved

into awkward

silence.


<pause>

I dared to speak

one word

SHE.


Did I say something

surprising?


Yes.

I. Asked.

The. Question.

Out. Loud.


they squirmed

in visible discomfort.


many furrowed brows

attempting to grasp

the cognitive dissonance

perceptions of power

image - human - poem


Human

traumatic brain injury

disability advocacy

chronic illness

rare disease

lord help me

fatness!

SHE.


Human

moulded through

the fractal path of

descent

TheoArtist

some kind of Theologian

who does SHE think SHE is?


Still...

SHE


the DRAGON...

they stuttered


its power...

they muttered


we just assumed...

fumbling

tumbling

trying to find words

just as I struggle

to flatten colorful complexity

into linear language.


SHE.

I affirmed

with what became

a one word poem.


THE FEMININE

story told in layers

a mirror of hours passed

bubbled jewels dancing

with decades of

ineffable harmony

opaque windows into

crystalline moments

where she learned that

IT was not HER fault.


BLUE DRAGON

slowly emerged

from the hermit shell

SHE

contorted

squeezed

starved and

fractured herself into

to stay small

contained

acceptable for him

grandeur is for him

dragons are masculine.


BLUE DRAGON

FEMININE

Who would want a mighty SHE?


I do, SHE said.
