I am “DIRTY” in a society that tells me
that being clean is GOOD,
Being happy all the time is GOOD,
making MORE money is GOOD,
Structure is GOOD,
Being a Mother is GOOD,
Virginity is GOOD….
I am DIRTY,
grinding my yoni against the rocks and feeling the water cascade down my chest.
The moon glowing upon me.
I am one with the animals, the elements, the fairy creatures, the dark moon dwellers.
I am a dirty girl mixing the mud with my hair to make dreadlocks,
sweeping the red dirt across my face, down my ribs and breasts.
I am a dirty girl dancing naked under moon light.
Honoring the place where my menstrual blood drips…
Just as wild animals are born to do.
I am a dirty girl because I touch myself for the pure joy of touching myself.
I recognize my belly as it bulges out,
I honor my womb for its ability to create life.
Because I am primal.
Because I am ALIVE.
I am Nature.
