she was the first layer.
with layers inside layers.
her tears opening
fold after fold
infinity inside one

they were the next layer.
women the world over.
their pain sending tremors
thru the very fabric
of the earth.
one inside infinity

dancing and falling.
rising and crumbling.
digging deeper and farther.
weaving dignity and honor.
layer after layer.
infinity becomes one.
one becomes infinity
