A whole lot more than

Just a hole

A whole

Full woman

A hole,

Woman.

The colonisers gaze;

At land

Mountainous

Fertile

land

Inhibited but not yet understood

A home

With no walls

Just windows

No curtains

A hole

On a scale of black and white

Highlighted

In yellow

Setting sun

On land

Mountainous

Fertile

land

A home

With no walls

Just windows

A whole

Full woman

Reduced to just

a hole

The colonisers gaze;

Taught me admiration

The colonisers gaze;

Taught me seduction

The colonisers gaze;

Taught me temptation

The colonisers gaze;

Taught me determination

The colonisers gaze

Taught me;

How to be stubborn,

How to be blunt

but,

Sharp

 

Colonisers gaze;

This body is claimed

Claimed by its inhabitants

Stubborn inhabitants

Armed with blunt bullets

And sharp shields

A whole lot more than

Just a hole

A whole

Full woman

A hol

-ly

Woman.

I am my own land

Mountainous

Fertile

Land

Inhibited and worshiped

Highlighted

In yellow

Setting sun

I am home

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
