Documentary

Watching a Paula Rego documentary

the abortion paintings haunting

more than sexual exploitation

the girl squatting over the bloody bucket

waiting- for what?- the horrors

of the voyeur’s imagination

the mind stripped bare- like the drawer

of knives in Larkin’s poem

saying out loud

what everyone already knows.

 

She says she can’t hear.

Will you listen for her?

You say yes.
