A Poem by Kumari.

Heart by Kumari

When you welcome a man inside you,
you are welcoming schools of striped
fish, polar bears, penguins,
dragonflies and kingfishers,
jackals and gorillas.
Pelicans coated in black tar,
cracked desert lizards, and
stagnant pools of hopelessness.

When you welcome a man inside you
you are welcoming his
half-eaten sandwiches
and obvious lies.
You welcome his
anger towards his mother and
a pending court case.

You are welcoming generations
of disappointment.
AND
you are no longer you.

In welcoming a man inside you,
you will never be you again.

When you welcome a man inside you,
there is a chance that he carries a
love medicine so profound
your scars fall away,
flowers bloom in the
furrows and rainbows dance
in your eyes.

When you welcome this man
inside you,
you will never be you again.
