assault

strip of paper
irrevocable whip of platinum
he took her into the bloody night after saying

“you sure have a pretty mouth.

i’ve always wanted to bag one looks like you”

even through it all
all of september
wrists the color of a bruise rainbow with a pot of pain
she only remembers that he called her pretty.
