little girls are women somehow in some way

"no no
no"
is what women
utter in despair
"no no
no"
i cried it
into my pillow
at age 13
when i understood
that a man once
broke my
mother's ribs
for sport
"no no
no"
and she came
into my room
to hold me
"what's wrong my
baby?"
even children know
not to tell
a person
about pity
