Wow! I did a search for poems about rape because I’m the Lit. Editor for this small Lit. Journal at the Community College I’m going to, and this woman submitted a piece about rape and the importance of it, but it doesn’t seem to fit; I thought her piece was too journalistic and I wanted to encourage her to write a poem or a short about the subject instead…I guess I can take comfort in my efforts now. Any suggestions on other poems about rape, or short stories? Also she wrote a piece about rap, and how it’s a valid art form and misunderstood, but again, too journalistic…any suggestions here?
