virgin

By Emma Geller

with violent lace
& bridal veil,
she made promises
no one else could keep.

unless one wished
to die on a bed,
all white & naked 
with remorse for him. 

with his ugly rage 
that coursed in river streams,
it raged all over her, 
she’s drowning

with his ugly rage 
that coursed in river streams,
it raged all over her, 
she’s drowning
