Hidden Woman I

In your heels In your lips Your tight belly Your pantyhose I owned you and disdained you I didn’t believe what I knew I held you outside my busy greedy expanses Guilty I said you were lovely but I never could be seen with you Like a phobic fascist I hated you for what I did And never comprehended my reflex Instead in terrorized dreams I always fled my police
