Moon Maiden

She was brought up by sassy bellydancers,

and renfaire wenches laced up tight,

pagan priestesses, gals with tattoos

buxom and lithe, with wild hair and man-eating smiles

From the laugh lines of her adopted grandmamas

to the clove-cigarette stained fingers of her soul sisters,

came love and advice, commiserations and exhortations,

and most of all — best of all — Acceptance.
