Meditation at Dawn

Red clouds

scream.

Another

woman torn

in two

by sky gods,

raped twice –

once through memory.

And still they

want

corroboration?

A woman’s truth

is never enough.

Unspeakable horrors

are sanctioned

in unhallowed dark places

alone

by those who

hold the power.

 

For women

Compassion and Justice are dead.

 

The Supreme Court’s need to have corroboration for Christine Ford’s testimony is an oxymoron. Rape or attempted rape almost always occurs when other people are absent. To suggest that Christine needs more validation is a sneaky way of discrediting her by using  “lack of further evidence” as an excuse.
