Jane Doe Speaks

Jane Doe Speaks
by Sara Bailey

I am this body. If
you want a part
of me then please,
take these
eyes. I don’t want
to see a world I’m
not part of.
While you are there
with the knife
that hovers—
take my ears
lips
hands
arms
legs—
all of them.
These pieces,
(when you’re done)
I won’t need them.
