Admire My Swagger

Swaying universe of flesh
my power, swinging
back and forth,
a pendulum mapping time
from when these hips
were forced to crumple
beneath men who felt
this swagger shake
their flimsy worlds -
to the Amazonian priestess,
her dark feet dancing
in dirt ceremonies
birthed from the throb
knowing these hips
could capture gods
because they already
held man.
