Signs[woman series] #2

The dislike of my feminine name
gave birth to my pen name.
girl. woman. daughter.
of the twenty or more so years
has been a tag upon myself
and also the iron bars that imprisoned me.
to melt these hard things
and to extract the impurity of commonness
I have created a small knife
to assist me in venturing the woods before me
And to love the knife,
I resort to questioning about
those that surround me
