Response to the Enkidu Experience


My name is Adam or Eve or Steve or
Cain or Rehab, Ahab, Jezebel
Jimmy, Johnny, Billy-Sue, whatever.
Does it matter, my name?

What does matter is this:
I am a victim!
A victim,
Do you hear?

This may sound silly, but,
I have discovered
that there exists
processes’, realities’, gnosis’

contained in my biology
I cannot control,
I cannot change.
I am powerless,

by this body
I wear as clothes!

    This poem was composed with a girl I offended in mind.
