“the power
the position
she presses her feet
firmly with precision
she balances
all that she is carrying
her hat is
her crown in
this extraordinary gown the corset
reminds her to stay
her hips, they sway
to the sounds of the beads giving her the rhythm
to dance free

with the flowers
that laid before her
she’s a survivor & warrior”

(Referencing Dior, Couture S/S 97)
