You can tell me “not all men.”
every woman knows that.

But when the weight of a single man
crushes her into the mattress
and extinguishes the light from her eyes,
there is no statistic
or trend
or clever saying
that can stop her from feeling the burn of his touch
in every man’s gaze.

So maybe, to you, it’s one man.
But for her, it is all.
