A Poem By Jaya Sharma

Which way do we slice it?

Sex worker/non sex worker?

What if we slice it along

Sex/love

Can i fuck without the shadow of love?

Let alone sell sex

Can I support the right to sex work?

And not just the right of sex workers?

 

Which way should we slice it?

Lesbian/straight?

Allies from a safe distance?

But do those stirrings of desire

For her

Really leave you straight?

Which way do we slice it

Lesbian/straight?

What if we slice it at the very line of desire

For now… same sex desire

 

Which way do we want to slice it?

Dalit/Non Dalit?

No running from it

Privilege

Violation

Hyper sexualization

But what if we slice it along desire

The desires of Dalit women?

Which way do we want to slice it?

Kinky/vanilla?

But that love bite…

Right there on your neck?

And that time when your arms were pinned above you?

How do you want to slice that?

So say, Which way do we slice it?

What if we slice it at the very line of desire

Pain/pleasure

Power/lessness

 

Which way do we want to slice it?

Disabled/Non disabled

What if we slice it along desire?

Slice the idea of the body beautiful

Revealing just that crazy need to be touched

For now

Nothing more nothing less

Just touch me
