Lucilla Trapazzo - In the Circle of the Moon

my vagina sings tonight
a green child's song
she whispers around the fires
in the alcoves on the cradles

tonight my vagina curses
speaking the voices of all women
the mothers the witches the sisters
she thunders with Kali and Inanna

and then in purple she cries, my pussy
violated at night again and again
in the blind alleys - conjure
of a phallus - outrage never sated
the great animal

in the circle of the moon tonight my vulva is shining
the pulse of the World the cunt the snatch
the sacred shroud – the matrix
tonight the hoopoe's wail and the crosses are at peace
even the wind settles. I rest

tonight the mystery inflames me
