This potion is deliciously edible 😊

Right to Life


Marge Piercy

A woman is not a pear tree
thrusting her fruit into mindless fecundity
into the world. Even pear trees bear
heavily one year and rest and grow the next.
An orchard gone wild drops few warm rotting
fruit in the grass but the trees stretch
high and wiry gifting the birds forty
feet up among inch long thorns
broken atavistically from the smooth wood.

A woman is not a basket you place
your buns in to keep them warm. Not a brood
hen you can slip duck eggs under.
Not the purse holding the coins of
your descendants till you spend them in wars.
Not a bank where your genes collect interest
and interesting mutations in the tainted
rain, anymore than you are.

You plant your corn and harvest
it to eat or sell. You put the lamb
in the pasture to fatten and haul it in
to butcher for chops. You slice
the mountain in two for a road and gouge
the high plains for coal and the waters
run muddy for miles and years.
Fish die but you do not call them yours
unless you wished to eat them.

Now you legislate mineral rights in a woman.
You lay claim to her pastures for grazing,
fields for growing babies like iceburg
lettuce. You value children so dearly
that none ever go hungry, none weep
with no one to tend them when mothers
work, none lack fresh fruit,
none chew lead or cough to death and your
orphanages are empty. Every noon the best
restaurants serve poor children steaks.
At this moment at nine o'clock a partera
is performing a table top abortion on an
unwed mother in Texas who can’t get Medicaid
any longer. In five days she will die
of tetanus and her little daughter will cry
and be taken away. Next door a husband
and wife are sticking pins in the son
they did not want. They will explain
for hours how wicked he is,
how he wants discipline.

We are all born of woman, in the rose
of the womb we suckled our mother’s blood
and every baby born has a right to love
like a seedling to the sun. Every baby born
unloved, unwanted, is a bill that will come
due in twenty years with interest, an anger
that must find a target, a pain that will
beget pain. A decade downstream a child
screams, a woman falls, a synagogue is torched,
a firing squad summoned, a button
is pushed and the world burns.

I will choose what enters me, what becomes,
flesh of my flesh. Without choice, no politics,
no ethics lives. I am not your cornfield,
not your uranium mine, not your calf
for fattening, not your cow for milking.
You may not use me as your factory.
Priests and legislators do not hold
shares in my womb or my mind.
This is my body. If I give it to you
I want it back. My life
is a non-negotiable demand.

NC: I’m so tired of people policing black women’s bodies. No matter what we look like there’s always fault. I find it funny that a lot of people like to bring up the fact that the average black woman is overweight, yet curvaceous bodies are what is considered attractive in the black community. The same men who use this statistic in a negative way are the same guys who chase after women with very curvaceous bodies and big butts. A lot of the time these women are slightly overweight because of their curves. Then there are the people who shame black women who don’t have curvy bodies, even if they’re in the healthy weight range and live a healthy lifestyle. I heard a man say on live t.v. that if a woman doesn’t have a large ass, that he has to “Pass.” I also hate the fact that a black woman not having a pear shaped body or large butt and hips is enough for someone to question them. Black people come in all shapes in sizes, why is it such a crime of a lot of use don’t have very large butts ? Then when a black woman is in amazing physical shape she’s “Masculine.” Serena Williams for example. Ronda Roussey is very muscular  just like Serena, but no one calls her “masculine,” or tries to shame her on the fact that she is physically fit and strong. People don’t want to acknowledge the fact that Serena’s one of the most successful people of our generation and her physical and mental strength is what got her that. It makes me sick!
