Performance with Shelby Zink

 

 

unburied women

Blood takes on the form of a staircase.

The past is embodied each day,

giving birth to a blaze, a crown. 

Slowly we cut a path between

shadow and illumination.

We do not go, return or know,

but we are guided and no one cries.

Through long hours you persist, 

with ferocious majesty. We rise

from the realm you now eternally rest. 

It is a scattered beauty, so

we continue spreading the essence

of strength through eyes,

and love through breath,

piecing together our awakening.
