The Rape

Twenty two years later
on a radiation table
left arm pinned down
with surgical tape.
My chest is quartered,
sectioned, tatooed
for the computer eye.

As the machine
rover
scans my breast,
I go back.

His massive body
restraining
my chest
as he held my left arm,
locked.

And the knife
to my throat.

While the part of me
that is me
went into his bathroom
to see the
clawed feet
of the tub.

I stared from the ceiling,
a weightless consciousness,
I felt
nothing.
