masturbation



not understanding why she was told not to
not understanding why she was made to feel shame
she dared to climb on top of the kitchen counter
open the forbidden cupboard, stand on her tiptoes
reach her hand for the jar of honey she was warned not to taste
she struggled to loosen the tight lid, when she finally cracked it open
all definitions of need, intimacy and desire had changed.
