The feminine in the divine

The feminine in the divine
Divine in the feminine
The rebel in the oppressed
The Feared within the fear

The maternal asserts:
Like the puja’s flame—heft in the immaterial,
Brilliance in red—powdery Vermilion, bedaubed
Omniscient thunder buried in the Holy drum

The petty wither—
Falsehood dismembered
Ignorance convolutes
Purged, cleansed, disentangled
I stand delivered
Delivered to light
