It's important
to let your significant other
have their way
with a violent thing
against you.
it was a bump on my back
which offended her
peering out
from beneath the light
tangle of hair.
She came in
with black gloves
pieces of toilet paper
a smile
and pushed as hard
as her 7 week old
double mastectomy let her
until all she drew was blood.
