a story of empowerment
"(untitled Cherita III)" by Joan E.

women send message

as Fearless Girl
stares down Charging Bull



Author Notes
The Cherita was created by ai li in 1997 and means "story" in Malay. It is presented without a title, and as above has a single line, a couplet and a tercet.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
