April 2: i am not one of the

/~I'm The Woman With Juice~/ (92/365.2)

i am not one of the

I am not one of the physically challenged —

I’m a sock in the eye with gnarled fist
I’m a French kiss with cleft tongue
I’m orthopedic shoes sewn on a last of your fears

I am not one of the differently abled –

I’m an epitaph for a million imperfect babies left untreated
I’m an ikon carved from bones in a mass grave at Tiergarten, Germany
I’m withered legs hidden with a blanket

I am not one of the able disabled –

I’m a black panther with green eyes and scars like a picket fence
I’m pink lace panties teasing a stub of milk white thigh
I’m the Evil Eye

I’m the first cell divided
I’m mud that talks
I’m Eve I’m Kali
I’m The Mountain That Never Moves
I’ve been forever I’ll be here forever
I’m the Gimp
I’m the Cripple
I’m the Crazy Lady

I’m The Woman With Juice
