Portrait of God As A Woman

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 4:53pm

She sits in aqua-coloured jeans

sandals tucked underneath —

She holds Her Onyx Pen

to write Her Self Out —

holds Her Onyx & Silver Pen

with an amethyst-ringed Right Hand —

She must write Her Self Out —

She has The Glare Of Silver

Streaks around Her

She has spoken, speaks

for nearly 22 years

of Her Conviction

That She Is Human

AND She Is God

She Must Write Out

She Is God
