Sekhmet’s Tits by Mona Eltahawy

Sekhmet’s tits are my revolution.

The run in my tights that leads me to you is my revolution.

Gonna start a revolution from my bed.*

A fierce red love;

fearless on my breath**

massively attacked you as Sekhmet’s bloodlust raced in our veins.

They broke my bones and my heart and their hands fought to find my pussy.

But my pussy fought for the revolution from my bed.

You kissed Sekhmet’s tits and you cried when we fucked and

I knew love would free my cunt and my heart.

Does Sekhmet cry when she cums?

Om Kalthoum told the sun to come back in a year و نقول للشمس تعالي تعالي بعد سنة

Give me your eyes for mine to wander through,***

Give me your arms for mine to find comfort.***

They broke my fucking arms.

And fucking you released my rage;

gonna start a revolution from my bed.

My Napoli poet with the hands of a butcher and the soul of Neruda

says my hair is like war and my pussy is like fire.

I burned you I burned myself.

Sekhmet’s tits cannot be groped.

You kiss them and my revolution is my orgy of freedom:

Pink is the colour of my spray paint,

Pink is the colour of my pussy,

You want to fuck me in my pink coat.

Red red red stay close to me Sekhmet;

bleed me pure. I didn’t bleed when they broke my bones.

Red red red bleeding the words from me but I can’t stop thinking:

Sekhmet’s tits are my revolution.

I’m the proud savage.

I’m Sekhmet’s daughter.

Your damage is more than mine but your revolution is mine.

I tried to find a person undamaged but I need your pain.

You kiss Sekhmet’s tits when we make love and you know my revolution must start from my bed.

Sekhmet’s revolution starts from my tits.
