virgin vicki

i am choosing this day
to reclaim my right to be whole
intact
a woman unto myself
no longer available
to dozens of johns
who stake their claim in me
defining for me who i am
only then to withdraw
taking a part of me with them

i am calling myself home
from where i’ve been torn and scattered
deciding for me who i am
choosing at last to say yes
to that which i bear within
and no
to those who would enter
with desires
that are not love making
