Courduroy Couch (TW // sexual violence)

 TW // sexual violence

poem by Joshua Brown

Little child in the dark

Light through door ajar

Here put this in your hand

Empty face on lined couch

Boy froze in time and space

Boy? Or was it girl and man?

Thirty years old or fifteen?

The child was three or four

The erect penis burned

A tower to hell burned

Light through the door ajar.
