She Has

She has two hands,
two eyes,
a mind.

She knows and sees the world.

She measures and binds the way of things,
and tastes the bitterness
she’s swimming in.

“I am more than capable,”
she tells the stars.

“I am Madonna,
I am Aphrodite.
I am Isis,
Helen of Troy!”

(They twinkles,
they shine,
but they never respond.)

She looks at her two hands
with her swelling eyes
and knows in her heart
she is right.

And yet…

He cannot see.

She will make him see.
