“A Willing Participant” by Joseph G. Allen

A willing participant

  dances to the pipers scale

    She removes all vices

      allowing her garments to fall


Her body, honed and weaponized,

  spills blood by her sharpened lances

    Plunged deep into the perversions of men,

      like a violent and merciless intruder


She moves naked in the streets

  Arousal succumbs to splendor

    She blooms where flowers have failed
