Suburban Fantasy

1 February 2018

You maltreated

my poor
body
your
savage
love filling me with
child

force-
ing
me down on
your filthy
mat-
ress

stinking with
vile
blood

and

roots
you know nothing

pack your
things This is my house
go


* An erasure poem from pages 170-171 of Christina Stead’s The Man Who Loved Children, Penguin, 1970
