citizens of the womb…

from here and there movies-music et al

i don’t need to tell you
what this is about
you just start on the inside
and work your way out
we are all polylingual
but some of us pretend
there’s virtue in relying
on not trying to understand
we’re all citizens of the womb
before we subdivide
into sexes and shades
this side
that side
and i don’t need to tell you
what this is about
you just start on the inside
and work your way out

– excerpts from the lyrics of a song by Ani Difranco…

read the above on blogosphere…moved me deeply…especially, the line referring to us as citizens of the womb..
