Mine

Art by Abram Sweetser


my body is my home
and I will do with it what I please
it is a temple
and I will not allow you to violate it
it is a sanctuary
and your catcalls must be on silent
it is a church
but you cannot take my body or blood
it is a synagogue
you're allowed to light a candle but not to burn it down
it is mine
but what is mine is not yours.
