Paper Cuts and Sharp Tongues – Day 5

men were thieves
with their greedy take
their pulse of perversion &
real life conflict confining
the boxes to their bones,
naming my pink lips, licked with spit
they pressed beneath
their hypocritical thumbs
the rough rub of not enough
sealing the envelope
making me mute
