“You were right.
Your deepest darkest fears were not unfounded.
The vagina dentata is not a mythical nightmare.
It truly is real.
The teeth are real.
Teeth that bite and tear and sever.
And they are ours.
You thought you were safe, that everything and everywhere was yours.
You were wrong.
You violated your word, our space, our bodies, us.
We are not yours and we’re coming to remind you.
With our hidden pointed teeth.
We shall consume you.
You can’t stay out of the water to keep yourself safe
Because everywhere is our ocean.
We have cried enough tears to flood the world
Thanks to you.
And now we shall swim wherever we please
With our teeth ready and vision clear.
Every bite, a tower consumed.
Bones scattered and broken
Like promises and gaslight lamps.
Look over your shoulder,
The tide is rising and
She is coming.
Justice may be blind,
But she has two sets of teeth.”
