For I am the first and the last.
I am the honoured one and the scorned one.
I am the whore and the holy one.
I am the wife and the virgin.
I am the mother and the daughter.
I am the members of my mother.
I am the barren one and many are her sons.
I am she whose wedding is great
and I have not taken a husband.
I am the midwife and she who does not bear.
I am the solace of my labor pains.
I am the bride and the bridegroom
and it is my husband who begot me.
I am the mother of my father
and the sister of my husband
and he is my offspring.

I am the silence that is incomprehensible
and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
I am the voice whose sound is manifold
and the word whose appearance is multiple.
I am the utterance of my name.

For I am knowledge and ignorance.
I am shame and boldness.
I am shameless; I am ashamed.
I am strength and I am fear.
I am war and peace.
Give heed to me.  ⚡

Equality does not patronise

This is my body
This is my mind
This is my soul

All me
All mine

2015 – there’s a hole in the whole
2014 – ‘Ain’t I a Woman?’

the Day of the Woman

Extract from ‘A Prophecy of the Kingdom of the Soul, mystically called the Day of the Woman’

And now I show you a mystery…

The word which shall come to save the world shall be uttered by a woman.

So that women shall no more lament for their womanhood
but men shall rather say: “O that we had been born women!”

There shall nothing new be told
but that which is ancient shall be interpreted.

Hers is the light of the heavens
and the brightest of the planets of the holy seven.

She is the fourth dimension;
the eyes which enlighten;
the power which draweth inward to God.

And she who is alone
shall bring forth more children to God
than she who hath a husband.

And her kingdom cometh; the day of the exaltation of woman.
There shall be no more reproach…

All things are thine, O Mother of God
All things are thine, O Thou who risest from the sea.
And Thou shalt have dominion over all the worlds.

 

Anna (Bonus) Kingsford, Clothed with the Sun

there’s a hole in the whole

[International Women’s Day]

there’s a hole in the whole
when a hole is subjugated and negated
by the self-inflated virtue of a pole

there’s a hole in the soul
when polarity’s half narrative
is crafted by the masculine
as like the cosmic whole

there’s a line
there’s a circle
there’s a force
there’s a form
whether clear
or oblique
it’s unique
in its norm
for the existential journey
of each human being born
