Perhaps this body belongs to the first Time I was raped And I think about how up it is to Begin a sentence with the first time I Was raped I have run out of compassion For men who pose as feminist but when a Woman brings up the sexual assault Epidemic they suddenly want to talk About something else Something less of a downer I have run Out of compassion for wolves I've run Out of compassion for anyone who isn't Outraged this is not to say all men are Hungry this is not even to say that all Men are hunting but haven't we all found The bones of a woman stuck like Leftovers between a full man's teeth a Few hours before one of my best friends Raped me on our college campus We discussed the prospect of astral Projection He couldn't understand why I wanted to Experience it so badly why would anyone Want to leave their body he laughed And in this moment we had nothing in the World in common

Hey... I'm Jasper!
