My Body

My body, a funeral pyre
My body, your sermon of fire
My body, Phoenix before rebirth
My body, six feet under the earth.
My body, a tropical storm,
My body, a child unborn
My body, the music room of fire and rain
My body, a tuneless refrain.
My body, a grieving wife,
My body, harbinger of life
My body, a harlot's curse
My body, a death by verse.
