If a man makes you unclean,
if you feel dirty when he touches you,
then maybe he should look at his hands.
Because the filth comes from him.
It lingers on the tip of his fingers.
Every time he brushes them against
your skin, he leaves more prints.
But the skin he touches,
it will be new again.
And another person
will come along leaving their traces
and you will be able to feel
The hands
that used to outline
your jawline and brush your hair
from your face, will be washed
from your mind and from your skin.
