Return me to Earth by Anna Ruiz

Painting by Arna Baartz

Rome wasn't built in one day,
and Paris isn't burning.
An inconvenient truth is not
just icecaps melting and Mother Nature
retaliating.  We, who are about to die
are not gladiators from a distant planet,
nor lizards in the science of copulation,
planting eggs in the eyes of the beholder.
I am made of stars, I am human.
I am woman, return my love 
in all that you see.

-Anna Ruiz
