When The Infinite Servitude of Woman is Broken…

“…When the endless servitude of woman is broken, when she lives for and by herself, man — who until now has been abominable — will release her from her duties and she too will be a poet! She will find the unknown! Will her worlds of thought differ from our own? She will discover strange, unfathomable, repulsive, and delicious things. We will take them and understand them.”

Arthur Rimbaud
from Rimbaud Overview and Analyses

I believe everything we dream
can come to pass through our union
we can turn the world around
we can turn the earth’s revolution
we have the power
People have the power .
