The Witch Poppet

by Donia Elizabeth Allen

You makke mee
With soot & stolen

Peaces of silke.
You are noe fool—

You wish
For some thing

Oulder than angel.
I am noe green

Witch, I know sweat
& strong water,

How to leave
Frayd edges

Under the bellys
Of strangers.


Donia Elizabeth Allen’s work has appeared in jubilat, Fierce Magazine, Callaloo: A Journal of African and African-American Arts and Letters, Honey Magazine, Lexus Magazine, The Madison Review, Sojourner: The Women’s Forum, and Odyssey Couleur Magazine. She lives in Harlem. (4/2006)
