Content Warning: Sexual Assault, Incest

Graphic by Sarah JensenĀ 

Because I was Raped By My Father

 

I’ve seen old age

found its first suggestion in my face

like so many women who were women too soon,

 

women who were beautiful at the wrong time

flowers that yield

their sweetness only once

blooming on a hot night

empty by dawn,

 

eyes inflamed like arthritic joints,

bloated fruit which, from fissures,

drip juice attracting ants and flies
