Possession

No exorcism
no casting out
for the demon
is on the outside
while we hold fast
to who we are

Identity is
chipped away
stripped away
by slow inches

We are not our own
it will never be enough
until we submit

To man
to church
to government

To any power
that fears
what it is that makes a woman
– Caroline A. Slee
