inside.

why are some of us
embarrassed
afraid
and
careful
to say the word
rape
and vagina
around people
when clearly somewhere
a girl in a city riding a bicycle
handles the brakes poorly
to avoid the encounter of bullies
on the side of the road
when clearly somewhere
boys (not men) insert a rod inside a girl’s vagina
taking turns to rape her
and not afraid
to get away
with handling a body
like eating the pulp out of a pomegranate
and leaving out the hard fruit skin
naked?
