A Room of My Own: Young Women and Clinic Tanka

overcast skies
pregnant with moisture ...
young women pray
and protest with linked arms
outside a clinic

Note: The tanka above could be read as a prequel  to the following tanka I published in 2017

alone outside
the abortion clinic ...
a teenager
stretches her hand to catch
falling rose petals

Cattails, April 2017
