BETTY
(6/21/16)


"fuck me"

she said

not so
much
a demand

but no hint
of a question
either

I think
that after all
of the abuse
she had suffered
that she simply
wanted to choose
a sex partner
for a change

I complied
of course

we stripped
off our clothes

got on
the bed

but nothing
seemed
to work
as planned

we probably
were both
thinking
too much
about
the situation

we laid
there
naked

silent

frustrated

confused

we were
only 9
years old

what
did we
know
