The Witch’s Eyebrow

My Scarlett O’Hara bitchy eyebrow has been a mood since 5th grade
Back when I had a major crush on the smart kid
And he told me I looked like a witch
And I just didn’t know how to handle that information

It’s hilarious, really,
That I objected to his comment
When clearly,
I have always had the makings
Of the local crazy lady
Who spontaneously bursts into song
And sticks feathers in her hair
And talks to plants
And can sense a strange power coursing through her body if she just pays attention

And so much of it gets neatly compressed into a raised eyebrow
As if to say,
“I can see through your shit
I am the Dark Goddess”

And that eyebrow speaks to me
More than anyone else,
As if to tell me,
“I can see through your shit
I am the Dark Goddess”

And I surrender my resistance again
And come back home to my body
The witch’s true abode
And love this long nose
And my ability to sniff out even my own bullshit.
