My Body Is Evidence

 

For a criminal case, my body became evidence.  Photos of it were entered into files in the District Attorney’s office. 

This has countless meanings for me, about the dehumanization that brought me to such a point, of being bodily evidence. 

I have to reach a space where I forgive myself for allowing such things to happen to me, forgive myself for my gullibility and my misplaced trust.
