witch

For a woman to be considered a witch, first she must suffer, cut
off limbs and branches, leave the less cursed behind
her blood will be a guiding light for those wandering after her,
wanting to crawl into mouths and foal lambs
for others to feed on.
When her legs grow ivy and blisters, blood will be black
shed like skin, scales forming grooves, thorns to be
stung.
