POETESS OF THE MONTH Leila Mehdi SAMARRAI
Thus spoke my mother.
Seek no longer the soil
Forgotten among the trees
Under which you were born
In the chosen night

A compelling rape poem from Serbia.

My pulchritudinous petals reach up for light
And they come to me like flies to rotting meat.
This is the world of lies
Of thirsty angels who die
While still appearing angelic
They’ve lost their shine
Have you ever been raped?
You should join me like a vampire
You’ll be bitten for a limitless life
For a never ending night of screeching sodomy…
