We are

We are the women made of stars that have exploded so far in the past it makes us dizzy.
And we can’t get out of bed.
We are the fierce warriors who fight to survive against dishes and clothes and empty fridges.
And for every victory we lose three battles.
We are the monsters who devour men whole yet we can’t seem to find our words in this world.
And their bones get stuck in our throat.
We are the women with back up plans, with emergency bags and written down pep talks on tattered post it notes from months ago in a different country.

And we can’t get out of bed.
