Crip Is Sexy

By Maria Sevilla

I have no words to describe
the violence of such a naked body
under my clothes. I imagine
Frida Kahlo and Carol Rama
penetrating each other. The beauty
of a pneumatic,
orthopedic erection , tearing
the filth between your buttocks:
filth of having a name,
filth of having skin,
filth of a womb stumbling
with all the children you will not have.
But I
have no words to describe
the shame of such a naked body
under my clothes and I can only
look at it through the keyhole.
I imagine your presence
piercing me. The beauty
of a pneumatic,
orthopedic erection , tearing
the dirt between my buttocks:
filthy to have a name,
filthy to have skin,
filthy of a womb stumbling
across all the children I will not have.
Because I
have no words to describe
the horror of being my cop
in my clothes.
