reduce/redux

when i was sixteen she
brought him into my
basement he
was so
new.

she asked my permission
and i asked his then
she took off his
belt and she
strangled
him.

after graduation
my parents gave me
dark looks but they
couldn’t talk
about
it.

one time my father found
the pictures he said
it’s not normal
you should choose
friends your
age.

she said would you please rape
me I will fight back
but you can’t stop
no matter
what I
say.

i said those must be good
cookies then she took
a knife into
the bathroom.
those doors
lock.

you have to marry her
(he was desperate)
she’s killing me
he cried. i
remained
mute.

her period was late
i said how late she
said three hours.
a funny
story
now.
