Open your mouth.

Until the pink inside

breaks through

with piano keys

tinkling out scales.

justice will prevail.

Open your mouth.

Speak up.

Shout out

tell it like you see


Open your mouth.

Break out of the half shell

your long red locks


over your sex.

Open your mouth.

Stand naked

in your alabaster skin

with the strength you

were born with.

You are perfection.

You are an art form.

You are a woman.

Lindsay Riggs Brown
