"Nettle-stung" by Shweta Narayan (includes the art used on this post):
They tell the story wrong. We were meant to be swans
spiders, peacocks, vixens, snakes. We shifted
one to the other to the other, weavers
of silk and story slipping free of every loom, fluid
under Soma's tidal gaze.
"B'resheet" by Julia Burns Liberman:
This is how it was for Lilith, first-born
human daughter of the Lord, first wife
to a man whose name was mud:
And "Three Principles of Strong Building" by Rose Lemberg:
The earth is mother, birthing stone from seed,
the earth is father, birthing seed from stone,
the earth is parent to the seed,
this moonstone shining with a latent gleam
invisible but to a mighty eye
that reads within each seed its ancestry
back to the dawn of time, before the first seed fell
into the endless void, creating land.
Plus that podcast I mentioned, which also includes the earlier fund drive poems by Jane Yolen, Carlos Hernandez and Sasha Kim. Enjoy!
