work_excerpt: 
From Testimonio of the Body, published by SheLovesMagazine, March 2018. You, like a Jasper stone, healer of duplicitous tongue. Courageous salt deposit – I find you unmoved, misshapen, borrowed from familiar words. Guided light, unmuted beneath my Lazarus shroud. Arisen from (d)(l)ust – sins of my foremothers. Spoken for, removed from implicit layered tierra firma. Kneaded bands of our stories smudged clay soul. How, like Mary, we wept.
