Dinah and Shekhinah

My womb is not the well
That draws out the water 
That gives you life.

And I am not the daughter who fills your pitcher.

I refuse to be what I do for you.
And I refuse to be the shadow of what you do to me.

I am larger than all the vessels you try to contain me in.
And though my face is hidden
I am the Glory. 

Greater than glances, 
Bigger than bodies.

More revealing than sight.
