i have no words

In grade school, I pigeon-holed my skeleton
into any crawlspace I could find
because little girls weren’t supposed
to have backbones.
I walked to school with my insides
on the outside—I never unlearned
how to be that raw.
That exposed.
I couldn’t fit the bones back
into my body, so with my skull
fitted over my head like a helmet,
I readied my softness for battle.
I was unashamed to be
the flower-girl in the combat zone.
One day, I would plunge my fist
into the pomegranate,
and dare them to make a victim
of Persephone.
I didn’t know that childhood fear
could grow into a rage this mighty,
but I will march with my beating heart
like a beating drum,
through the marshes of it’s own destruction.
I will come out on the other side,
and the blood in my mouth will be mine
and I will go kissing old wounds
with the copper tang of it.
I am scouring the Badlands of my body.
I am climbing the peaks of the words
they used against me.
I am painting pictures of dead men
on the palms of my hands, so
there will be no such thing
as surrender.

As an old man, Gym Leader Yanagi/Pryce discovers, after falling down a cliff with Satoshi/Ash, that his beloved Pokemon had frozen solid and remained trapped here all these years, holding onto medicinal herbs it had gathered on the edge of the same cliff to treat its trainer’s burns. Understanding that he hadn’t been abandoned, he breaks down in tears in front of his Pokemon.
