It’s alright
to go through dark woods
once in a while
and hear the cries of creatures
feasting on fetuses
that you have planned to carry
and give birth to

it’s the same thing

even if you travel
through a path full of wild flowers
listening to the bees
gathering nectar

it’s the same thing

you are not free from the chains of hell,
you will again take shelter inside a womb,
it’s not the walks that we take
or where we take them

the point is
they are all thoughts

and there is no one that claims them
other than a ready made self

where are the scissors ?
