I always wanted more

from “Adah Isaacs Menken” by Enid Dame in Confessions

You see, most people
stun themselves through life
convinced a half-dead state
is all that they can bear.

I always wanted more:
to mount the world and ride it
through the farthest galaxies,
to feel that power flow
between my legs.
