You were one of my “aunties in my head.”
Iconic mama bear, enfolding every woman, young and old(er) as your charge.
Nurturing us with the salve of wisdom, intention and feroricity.
Soft, but strong and unstoppably both,
You kicked some ass and made us better.
Lifting us until we saw stars,
Carrying us until we could carry others,
Metabolizing the patriarchy, so we could swallow it
Or spit it out.
You fought, and fought, and fought until forever
And forever you stood in power, now rest Baby Girl.
