a pink chalk uterus

lines the sidewalk

outside the high school

allison calls it medicinal pink, my favorite

color and on twitter

a dozen people can’t identify

the wings of a clitoris

a goat head

catching the foam

of my sneaker

on her porch we strategize mutual

aid and resistance

how to show up with energy

our bodies/their bodies/this

body tired oh so tired

deserves support

the great resistance

in bodies that count

within state lines

bodies within

bodies

chalking medicinal 

pink lines

invisible pink lines

talking
