i had to live it myself
to know what an ugly thing
force is
to be equally less than and greater than


she may give you a son
a daughter
hands of toil

but if she hasn’t given you the core of her

you’ve raped her
you’ve raped again
you’ve enslaved her
you’ve robbed her voice

and the product is me
metaphorically raped
literally enslaved
