Fleshing the bones

MESA’s sexual assault poetry event strives to put faces to statistics

By Amanda Moutinho

Talking about sexual assault is uncomfortable. It’s sensitive, disruptive and combative. But talking about sexual assault is vital, says poet Dominique Christina. “You have to interrupt, and you have to agitate,” Christina says. “I’m interested in radical conversations that pull people into consciousness and call power out. You have to risk the discomfort because you know what the end game is, and you know how bad it can be if you don’t. All of it is inconvenient. Any fight is inconvenient. Any rebellion is inconvenient. Any revolution is inconvenient.”

Intense chemotherapy followed, as well as debates about whether the affected leg would need to be amputated. Surgery saved the leg, but the chemo continued. For nine months, Vicsonti would come home from the doctor connected to a pump that delivered drugs for five days straight. He endured this every three weeks for the entire nine months.

There were ghosts, they told us. Strange bumps and sounds in the night. Lights that turned on and off for no apparent reason. Doors that slammed shut, suddenly and without warning. Things that kept you up at night. We thought about it and then climbed into the deep softness of our bed.
