fear and rage as raw as pain
dwell within the devil’s jungle
I was born of wicked waters
quaking in her red lagoon
cast away from ivory towers
stained with pearls of misery
burns in my hands
unbound by heaven’s harmony
with fists that throb and howl
I will strike
for I am free.

Artwork by Deborah Stevenson:
I can’t really put it into words.. but I like that there are so many recognizable pieces within it. .. Comforting and creepy at the same time. The pelvis- shape makes me think of birth and femininity … but the stark contrast between black and white and the sort of sharp but symmetrical corners give it an ominous feeling. Some elements are strong and warm, others seem tentative and reserved. It kind of looks the way I feel.
