Here’s an intense and powerful poem by Luz Maria, Dedicated to the facing and violence, in Different Truths

that woman that you see 
behind the glass of your eyes,
mauled by your decrees,
is a free woman!
freer than the of
daughter of a memory
and the god of all the immortals
that woman that your hands crumple
and leaves empty your looting for evilness
makes birds flourish into fragrant gardens
plants immensities you will never perceive
that woman of pulsing voice and illuminated spirit
where you could not even name yourself as human
and where you have no right to quench your thirst
for you are neither seed, land, , time
but your own abjection
that woman, that very same woman, 
will leave you sentenced
go after you and call you by your
and under her towering
you will lastly succumb!
