I will fight injustice with justice, she says.

and,  I bring you a choice.

But what if she said,  you will obey me?

 

That pride is a pit

and Khaleesi is no peach.

Brute. Burden Beast

She is Bullied, Brazen and Bare.

 

She has scrabbled with man, horse and spirit.

 

What is fire-born can be fire-ridden,

for, one hand has five fingers

One digit could lead the others astray

 

This hand is reaching up

as she is of the air.

 

She says, I will see each of their faces

When she says each, she means all.

What if,  in the moment that she leans in close

to the lens, there is a smear of sap

What then of womanhood?

 

A mother of dragons

is still a mother.

Her stare is blue:

a fire, not catching.  

a stunted sun

a contorted kiss

a vein left turned

 

this hand gives allegiance

and this hand,  the heart.

and this heart  beats

 

with the roar of a wingspan

so big it could cover us all

in darkness.
