Genevieve’s Week Four: Sacral Chakra No. 3

sacralchakra

Sometimes the pain
is prehistoric. Sometimes
she carries it for others.

Will she touch it,
go near it with a ten
foot pole, even closer

than the doctors do,
pick up the scarred
cervix and rock it

against the fine tilt
of her chest? Each of
her organs are fleshly pink

and they wail like
newborns. How does
one satiate a hunger

so abominably physical
that it threatens to
transcend this world

and move on to the next?
She’ll leave behind all
talismans to pick a path

laid with the marrow of
raped bones, steeled skin.
Lady crocodile, won’t you

open your mouth? There
is something beating there,
just beneath your tongue.
