post abortion interview by Carla Sarett

post abortion interview

no there wasn’t
love
or it got lost

no I wasn’t
drunk
but I forgot

what happens to women’s
bodies
on unimportant nights

no there wasn’t much
pain
or it didn’t last

no there wasn’t
shame
except I had

to ask a man for
money
& I counted it
