I watched the movie “Suffragette” this evening. I cried all the way through, and for an hour after I got home. It is a beautiful, respectful tribute to those women who gave so much, and lost so much in doing so.

losing loved ones, health and life
my sterile tears fall
searching out their crumbling bones
to pay homage to their glory
