Unbridled Rage

By Catherine Heath

July 2024

For all the men who dared. 

You can't cage a phoenix--

You might try,

But we're dragons--

And we will fly.

Burn them all! 

I'm Frankenstein's monster, baby.

(He put me back together)

When he broke me,

With his sickle;

Death's staff 

Looming over my head.

He dropped it,


Or swung it with such force,

I shattered. 


I'm his puzzle--

With a piece missing

Reborn from the ashes--

The Vikings;


Up out of their long ships. 

You find us in prisons;




We’re hard as nails, baby--

(I could stab you with one)

If you came too close.


Don’t mistake a catcall

For an offence--

For I am a cat,

And I know what a 


Sounds like.
