Frida was a feminist.
She defied Rivera’s expectations for her
And rejected Detroit though he loved it.
She suffered tragedy,
like the bus accident when she was 18, my age
and losing her child, who she was decidedly
And she only used it as fuel for her career as an artist.
Rivera was at his peak,
but she knew her potential was more important
Maybe it was selfish
Maybe she just wanted to make a name for herself
