once we have heard
just once
deeply heard your names
interior elder sisters
just once heard all daughters
hold all the people
there will ever be
before ever breathing a breath
being pinked out
learning to be tasty
and everything nice

divine daughters
life will for us be different.

A vocal artist, writer, and composer, Rachel Bagby is author of Divine Daughters: Liberating the Power and Passion of Women's Voices, (Harper San Francisco) from which this poem was drawn.
