This woman-child in the mirror

reflections of many ;
the daughter
the wife,
the mother,
a friend:
amidst the many lies
                                  she
like a corpse awaiting resurrection
– her self-abandonment is waited upon
to end
this exile
reclaim her body
redefine her borders
move from the periphery
to her being Central
