body mirrors violation
   nihilistic icon

body bans violation
into bizarre regions
to inhabit autonomy

violation not execrated
but secretly embraced
as cardinal icon of existence

violation a compulsion and a scorn

body creates boundaries
        between the familiar and the hostile

guards the two dominions

but poles corrupt
