Fernanda Burgath – Ultimate

Today I woke up
such an angry
angry bitch
I didn’t know where to put
so much anger
I stopped for a moment
took a deep breath and
realized that the anger
came up from my uterus
I went for a walk
and got fatigued
the air was heavy
you know?
I bought some carbs
at the market and
got stoned on sugar
watching series
a friend told me
to canalyze it
that it was my
creative energy
stuck in the womb
so, girl
guess what
I’m pregnant!
with a poem
with a lyric
with a riff
with a drawing
with a plant
with a full house
to be decorated
I’m pregnant
with myself
with an entire
season of me
