ancient right

it is the right
 of all Women
   the rite
 of blood

it is the rite
 of all Women
   the right
 of Moon
   to gather Us

it is Our write
   to get Her
   ancient energy

it is Her writ of right
   a chant entered out
    Our inner lips
   to enchantUs
   with Our innateness
 of Moon blood

it is the unwritten rite
 of Our Moon
   to riot Us
   with ancient right
