I have another body
                     of me
they call it
[but this is pain]
if I had carried you in my body
only then I would have felt your existence
                                          this much.
This World is a Man
I am a woman
like this huge earth
                         I am treeless
                        maybe I am living
                        I am under earth
                        I am upside-down
I am breathing
not so that I stay in this world more
sometimes I go to a man
                       -to a nothingness-
this world is a man
strong, coward, cheater
All the lines of my body
                are awakening
Like a grape
              I am full, I am black
if you don’t have a man
              to love you
make men from your hands
[because they all
like the bridges
           reach to your body
                           and falling down]
