“You speak to me from inside me, i have three hearts. girl turning into woman woman turning into mother mother turning into venus mother is a cocoon where cells spark, limbs form, mother swells and stretches to protect her child.
“Mother has one foot in this world one foot in the next, mother, black venus in the dream i am crowning osun, nefertiti, and yemoja pray around my bed, i can smell jasmine, i wake up as someone places a wreath upon my head.
“Venus falls in love, flowers grow wherever love touches her, this is how she is reborn i look at photographs of my mother when she was pregnant with me, does she feel how i feel now?
“Venus has flooded me, second planet from the sun, i wake up on her foamy shore. she wants to take me to meet my children. i’ve done this before i’m still nervous.”
