Devika Mathur: Goddess


I am the woman the goddess of springs and words.

watch me rise through threads of raisin

like a vintage blob of sun, a phoenix from ashes.

My mouth is covered with cellophane of rust skins,

it knows how to unwrap of sins, a murderous night,

Watch this body of cold moon, a silent night made of quiet mountains.

Observe and stay with me, I throttle along with the rivers,

I provide and love, like a goddess of all time.
