witch with a capital b!

there's a song
from the 90's
that encapsulates
a woman
tropical gummy octopus

is -- from tender
nurturers to personal
demonic terrors
depending upon
the situation

the truth
is women
are all those
things but
that doesn't
make us any
less human
or vulnerable

let me provide
you with a thought
provoking image

picture an octopus
if you will -- each
tentacle is a different
role we must play
in our lives
-- not a role for theatrical
purposes but; components
that construct or de
who or what
we are

where was i,
yes, each tentacle
taken wrapped around
a cog that's attached
to a vice grip which tightens
a rake -- with each
task or role
we are stretched
thin enough
to be prepared
in lieu
of the usual
