What are the private fantasies of young girls?

the doll itself
is a great empty
wanting to be played with

any man who transgresses
sexes her
what you begin
unbuckling expectation
as first assent
she never says no
& she is perfect

better to hold you
with my gaze
if your eyelids are removed

the harmonics of cutting
her open hole to hole
look

anyone can fill a doll
with what they hate
about themselves
