An Intrinsic Exquisite


my rape
is mine

there is no actor in the verb

the victim owns the crime

my rape was solitary

there are no solitary pleasures

poetry brings god

there are no gods of rape

even the devil is not implicated
the devil is temptation
the right hand of God

the devil has minions
the devil is not alone

rape is a solitary act
rape is the black hole of my universe
into which everything else pours



is a solitary act
