Ravenous

 

I spent a decade

No. Much more.

Playing quiet and straight

Necessarily narrow

No cornered Baby

But a full-grown woman

Taking notes on who others

Told me I should be

 

I’ve eaten those notes

Shredded Baby

Torn out the corner

And now stand before you

Sharpened claws exposed

Locking wide eyes with others

As ravenous as me
