Powerfilled Bodies

[Trigger Warning: Rape]

This is a poem for the powerfilled bodies that stood on Prince Alfred street today.

These are the facts of a powerful and perverse system.

This is a reality; this is just a beginning.

It is part of Herstory.

The student body,
The students’ bodies,
The studied bodies.

Exposed breasts are not indecent
– they do not warrant arrest.

The power of a body,
The power in a body,
The empowered body.

Rape.

Abused.
Violated.
Violent.
Vicious.
Evil.

Rapist,
– arrested?
