Good Book

this book makes me uncomfortable
with each page crackling
like whips at each turn
there’s too much rape and slavery
along with a few pinches of incest
the slaveowner has no redemptive quality
 there’s no Morgan Freeman to narrate
and soothe me. there’s no real conclusion
just more death and rape
let’s read romance
yeah, the hunk is a misogynistic asshole
with ripped shirts, disguising commandments as chocolate tones
and he always appears out of nowhere
but the sex is so good and consensual
and they live happily ever after
now that’s a book
