After having the guts and determination to prevail against her rapist in court to have him locked up, the losses just kept piling on. Out on the path. Somehow, I thought it might be my mother, and I panicked. She told me how Diane, who, like Mary Alice, was five ten, had practically lifted up the small RSA in order to get my whereabouts out of him. I was told this by the police. I was not to do that, she said, because that might disrupt the culture of my vagina and destroy the evidence the frre needed.

My body stretched out, disassembled, gagged, dead.
