Poem: Someone

Someone is trying to open

the door the main door

probably a mistake

easy to make since I don’t

have my name on the door

they’ll soon realise but

no they insist

I get out of bed hard-

on close to the main door

someone trying to get in

I open and close another door

making my presence known but

no they insist

if they break in and I’m naked it will be so demeaning perhaps they’ll even rape me, kill me

my family will find me like that on the floor

shame they’ll think it was a random lover

I had it coming since I pick up men like that and I go back to the bedroom

and put on boxers

and trousers

and black socks

and button a long sleeve shirt
