Carolyn Hillyer

Proud woman born from earth and mother’s blood, we paint this red and sacred paste onto your pale skin, to remind you that your people will not forget you. Beloved woman we will take you to a tall tree, where you’ll cradle in the arms of your dead mothers, who are coming even now to welcome you home…
