Take it like a man by Natalia Spencer

How many men will actually feel

a rectal tear

and ignore

a perpetual bloody river

 ..

How many will take their own son

to Accident and Emergency

and ask for sutures

which will never stop oozing.

 ..

How many of them

does it take to change a lightbulb

into shards?

Just one, I’ve heard.

 ..

and how many, will it take for them to be

on their knees

crying

Lord, pluck out my eye.
