Tonight I will sleep. I am tired of being asked, “Did he do this?” Then, the same is done to me. He wants to undo the past. I want to disown my lips, hands, legs, thighs and all the body parts of a woman and get new untouched ones.  He came; I heard the toilet flush … I heard him breathe next to me. He called my name, my eyes were shut. He tapped the cot with his toes. He sighed. He tossed. Finally I heard him sleep, regular breathing. This is probably how a prey sleeps near a hunter.
