began to float.
began to line the bed with geranium.
began to place black rocks
at every entrance.
someone suggested I call on
Mother Mary.
that felt defiant.
I am Lilith’s favorite daughter.
began to hold the rosaries.
began to look over my shoulder.
sat for an hour straight
staring up at a drone
outside to assert my
flex. began to line the house
with brick dust
then salt
then tea lights
then the menstrual blood
on dark moon nights.

what I said out loud
is anyone’s guess but
I know I said
give it to me,
God
, palms
out and tied with
cross.
both submitting to the
reverent light and
immersing myself
in black.
I am elemental.
this is my third life.
there is no time.
