Let the Girls Run

poem about women



Let the girls run and
play untethered like
little boys before they
are told to cease and be
like little girls. For now,
let them swirl and swoop
and dive like thrushes
in the firmament. Or
better yet: six-winged
Seraphim in Beriah.
These girls will someday
become mothers to little
girls who will run
untethered like little
boys. But for now, let
them be girls. Let them
fly like the seraph.
