i am grateful
for that fateful August afternoon
i was disgusted at the time
but now
i am grateful
for every time you touched me
with your filthy hands
i am grateful
because it could have been worse
because it could have gone farther
but mostly
because it could have been her
i am grateful
that it was me
though i was disgusted
and ashamed
and hurt
and confused
now i am grateful
that we both learned a lesson
even if you didn’t
even if you never will
we learned
and now we are safer
i am grateful
