    Here she goes again, unable to enjoy normal sexual relations, everything between men and women is a rape which must be overcome

    Short thought provoking poem, a cute clear verse that can be explained in many ways. To my opinion: too many ways, since the list will be too long and no space enough if I start to write these kind of ways. Indeed You Fit Into Me, that's true poetically said. Thank you so much dear poetess Mrs. Atwood. I love reading all your poems, they fit into me.

    Well said. First two verses must be sarcastic! I first got the fitting image of a eye and hook lock. The second image destroyed that one.

    After a seven year itch,
    I believe,
    which may now even in three years reach.
