PAD Day 21. What I am /What I am not Poem 3. I am not that girl


I am not that girl

standing on strong
tanned tight thighs
bandana on my head
toned arms raised -
reaching out a flower
to place in a gun-barrel
and melt war, hatred,
pestilence and hunger
I am not that girl and
yet, still somewhere
shimmering in some
alternate universe of
parallel possibility
I am
still
that
girl

    1. I have no words... perhaps thought to be an impossibility but true. Thank you again.
