I really liked the poem very succinct and definitive. It doesn't leave much room for interpretation. Makes me think of The Handmaids Tale.

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.
