01.11 [Another] Muttā Therī (11)

Read aloud in “Pamela Weiss Hosts Matty Weingast”


11. I am well-released, properly released by my release from the three crooked things, from the mortar, the pestle, and my crooked husband. I am released from birth and death; everything which leads to renewed existence has been rooted out.


So this is what it feels like—

to be free.

Forever free

from playing the mortar

to my crooked husband’s

crooked little pestle.


For my mother.

For my daughter.

And for all the daughters

I might have had.

The cycle ends here.
