We Regress Into a Harrowing World

by Dakota Sebourn


Sorrow seeps from my bones

as my sisters across the nation

cry out in pain (control the non-men)


I am beholden to my rage

and six cis religious bigots

are coming for me next (control the non-men)


We are a commodity

to be dealt with

as the cis man sees fit (control the non-men)


Let there be no peace for our oppressors,

for dead men reap no wombs.
