    Inside The Jelly Jar

    I remember when

    Nassau Island
    Was the universe
    And summer vacation
    Was a shooting star

    And ohhhh
    How the butterflies
    Were free
    Back then

    And
    I remember when

    I tried to
    Capture freedom
    Inside my empty
    Jelly jar

    But

    Just when
    The butterfly's wings
    Began to flutter

    The stranger
    Approached me

    And my arms
    Began to flail

    I wrestled him
    With all the
    Eight year old
    Strength
    Hidden inside of me

    But his middle finger
    Penetrated
    My vaginal walls
    Anyway

    In the background
    The colours
    Of butterfly wings
    Were fading

    And

    Youth was melting
    Into flower beds
    Stained with blood

    Ohhhh

    How I wanted
    Wings
    Inside the
    Jelly jar

    Back then

    And

    I remember when

    My wings
    Were taken away

    Thank-you fellow poets

    For allowing me to crawl out from the sticky insides
    Of the Jelly Jar...for understanding....the importance
    of colours and wings

    indeed

    a very significant scribe for those of us needing to come out from the confines of our former constrictions...

    and we all stand in need of being the authors of our own emanicipation proclamation.

    this is excellent, hunter...I 'see' now.
