La Contessa

‘La Contessa’


Out of a bed of jewels 

and feathers

she rises,

adorned with the luster

of magic.

Her atoms rearrange

the air around her.

With the softness

of petals

but the force

of oceans,

she breathes

pure power

and grace.

Amazoness

Aphrodite

Nefertiti

Cleopatra:

she bears

a living lineage 

of queens

and wears their crowns.

The reign 

of the Goddess

has begun.
