National Women's Month: Alicia Winski's poem "untitled"

memory is vile and intrusive
I watched him get out of the car
something about the way he was moving…
for a moment, I loved him
until he stopped moving
we went inside
and I let him make love to me anyway

sometimes I feel suffocated
tucked under a New York deep freeze with you
choked out on ashes and frozen leaves of grass
but every once in a while

I like to get out and remember

what it feels like to breathe
