“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds’. I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
– Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
so you can live
my life incarnate
of your bodied needs
my submission mandated
by right of patriarchal creed
my righteous outrage viciously crushed.
Shamed, I scratch among the ruins for me.
