Of Mysteries and Witches: Poetry


They say that Woman 
conversed with the Snake;
In truth, 
She conversed with Knowledge

The kind that powerful men barter
in clandestine meetings 
while claiming to have no secrets

Perhaps Orpheus knows
the Mysteries as She does,
but His maleness
absolves him of these crimes

A woman
that holds the power
of Knowledge
is only ever known
by a single title:
Witch.
