She

Parama in triangle pose at Chincultik

I’ve stared my own death

in the face

many times

abused

raped

nearly killed

Did I deserve it?

 

Men 

afraid

of the goddess

can only 

possess her

vilify her

violate her

 

Jesus

He could not have been a woman

because then we’d say

“She deserved to die”

The bible would list all the reasons

why She deserved to suffer

for our sins
