How can I be beautiful in the way fire is 
as it devours everything 
if I devour nothing? 
I am a whole woman 
built to consume 
built to expand 
built upon the backs and wombs of whole women 
who wrestle with invisible wounds and insecurities. 
I am the culmination of their fight for space 
and their bodies 
made from their bodies 
forged from stars 
so I devour.
