What the Women Do

see every bit
make holy of the ordinary
Water into wine
tears into laughter
alchemy of soul into a life.
make a living place
iron out spreadsheets and bed sheets
or not
bring home the bacon and cook
a fine meal
or not.
love the touch of your skin while
you’re falling asleep and before
your body emerges into a day
because women make bodies, breathe bodies,
inhabit a pulsing, bleeding, feeding, dancing body.
it’s what the women do.
