durga

to invoke fear

when she walks in

testicles pull into  bodies

she is a tornado

an earthquake

an atmospheric change

making you think

making you run

toward being

righteous

a cave covered in moss

there are drawings there

children emerged

children who will do

children who will make

children who are righteous

mother, friend, lover

wife, daughter, teacher

weaver of words

thought provoker

moving, shaking, jiving

singing tom waits

and knowing

yes, she knows

that look is truth

that feeling in you spine

listen

she knows

her laugh is not tinkling

there are no bells

it is water

flowing over rocks

it is drums sounding

drums not seen for centuries

she carries on

traditions

language

movements

anger

love

they live in her

the people under airstrips

used by the enemy

are her whispers

justice

what does that mean

reckoning

makes more sense

feminine warrior

fighting with the lust

of a conquered ppl

beautiful

wild and heroic

full of ancient wisdom

and current affairs

she is and will be

you should fear

caution is a good idea

respect, a better one
