Baba Yaga

by Caitlin Copland

I dreamed of the Yaga.
She looked me in the eye
told me she would consume me.

I was not afraid —
even when she opened the skylight
and began painting with my ashes.

With the encouragement of her partner and their fur family, she is working on self-publishing a collection of poetry and making her voice heard on topics that have impacted her life and story.
