CHICAGO SUN TIMES WRITER SAYS SEX WORKERS CANNOT BE RAPED

What if I had it

What if I had the gun

In my possession

What if I had the gun

The gun my friend had

The gun she used

After the night they coerced her into the back room

With that high paying Very Important Client

the same way I had been the year before

Baby wipes and filmy gauze all angles poking through

Where did she get it? Where has it gone? That gun

After she put it in her mouth and said No More

What if I had the gun she used

To put to the face

Of every smarmy bloviator

Saying sex workers can’t be raped.
