deja raconte

can i substitute all references to having hetero-conventional sex
with a man as *experiencing a penis* in my dissertation?
please advise. in the empty chair technique, i make the patients
think they are debating Godzilla. this is how to gestalt your relics.
all my therapy notes are tiny rabbits teeming to massacre your Id.
being a polyglot clinician means i can now misinterpret your
childhood in 5 different languages. in psychoanalysis they will
either blame your problems on your genitals or your parents
or your parents’ genitals. i turned in my synopsis late because
i was too busy pulling doves out from my belly’s grotto. every time
a father left me, i brought home a maimed animal. transference
is why my husband always says “i am coming” before he leaves
the house. the dean calls me the psych ward pit bull & maybe i
would scalp flesh off the dead to feed myself. my incisors whetted
against each parapraxis, at the altar i vowed – with this ring,
                                                                               i thee bled.
