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

undecided about

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

The Suicide of Dorothy Hale

“See, if I loved you, it was because of your hair and now that you are bald, I do not love you”
