we have more or less

we have more or less
power than we choose
to wield –
it’s not an exact
science, but a
reflection,
a call to make sure
everyone feels powerful

for every history,

for every history,
there is a sort of
engraving,
etched into
someone else’s
DNA, someone
who has been
telling the story
for way too long

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: history

it’s all well and good

it’s all well and good
to state that we will not show
up, that we will take
to the streets, show
solidarity by stepping out
of housework, child
care, maybe apply
some self-care at
the local beauty
parlor, therapeutic
spa. meanwhile, a
host of silent women
will step in
to fill the gap, make
the lunches, file the
nails, listen to and
nod and listen to the
ones who insist on
being heard
