By the force of my doom


By the force of my doom

By the force of my doom
The outcast

The blood of disgrace
Is in menstruation.

And not upon
(A foreign)foreskin
In humility

And not as
A wife to bear it
In humility

For this
I give

No guarantee.

I love the poetry of Tali Cohen Shabtai. I do not think there is a better creator than her to protest like in this poem.
Great and powerful!
