with shoes made out of sponge to collect water like roots,
with gloves made out of net to catch fish.
the water evaporates
then gathers in clouds in the sky
travelling with the wind
when they hit the mountains
the water falls as drops to the face of the earth
pouring in to springs and streams
travelling through the porous mountains and the soil
finally it reaches the ocean
and then, evaporates again
with lips like a mouth, devour us.
with lips like a vulva, give birth to us.
The water has a cycle, the female body has a cycle, the moon has a cycle. The water evaporates, then falls down, evaporates, falls down, evaporates, falls down. Just like we drink with our mouth and pee with our vulva. Our lips. They form an O.
“My body is a speaking body, she
says, and her mouth forms an O, forms
a circle, her lips rounded.”*
