Hairs pulled from root in five different places, inside of cheek scraped with a cardboard blade ten times, sterile swab run between tooth and gum, back and forth five times, body inspected for bruises, scratches, human bites, pubic hairs plucked and combed onto white papers, secret places that were taken cultured for seeds, bringing tears, and memories best forgotten. Story replayed by voice, in mind for nurse, for counselor, for doctor, for investigator until the story turned into a lonely nightmare. Aleathia Drehmer 2007
