Congratulations

Walk on
let the robes brush your legs
let your hair brush your shoulders
and walk tall
for you are woman in the world 
released now
from school rules 
do not let another govern what you
do or say
be your own woman
a lifelong task requiring defense 
strong arms
high hopes
and
tequila

    sing, sister, sing! released tallness in all its rule questioning beauty... is what this world needs! (take it easy on the agave, tho... it can be sinisterly seductive in a way that sucks the power right outa ya.) Peace.
