Tales From The Shelter 1

May 13, 2010 at 8:46 pm

Nancy is a soft spoken woman.  I barely know her but she asked me if I could go with her to the police today as emotional support.  I didn’t know the circumstances, save to say she had told me one day she had been raped a few times in her life.  I agreed to it because we had formed a bond after she made a first Nations drum and when i saw it I gave her some sage, cedar and sweetgrass.  Consequently she had asked me to be present with her when she took the drum to the beach to smudge it and give it it’s birth.

I waited outside the library for her and was glad I put my sunglasses on as the fellow at the next bench was from one of the shelters I had stayed in and I really didn’t need anymore ‘egos du jour’, having had my fill of them in today’s Sally Ann courses.

Nancy finally caught up to me and we went to the cop shop, a young officer ushering us into the same room I had been in a few months prior when I had to identify the pork-headed arse who assaulted me in one of the shelters.  Oh, hello, did I mention I’m homeless?

The cop asked Nancy some basic questions and went over that he would be turning on a camera to record everything.  While Nancy was soft spoken she was not demure and surprised me when, after the cop asked her to describe the relationship she had with the man she wanted a restraining order for, she replied , “We fucked”.

The cop wanted to know if she had given her consent and Nancy said, “It was a fabricated reality.  He gave me drugs, when he was high and I was high he wanted to fuck and sometimes I wanted to fuck but  because he’s the one who fabricated the reality then my realilty of pulling back or saying no had no meaning to him”.

I don’t think the cop understood what she meant but at this point in proceedings it didn’t matter because Nancy was still traumatized and trying to navigate through denial, nightmare, hell and society’s very decay.   That she had even made it as far as the cop shop was a miracle , an act of braveness not everyone takes.   While the young officer was sensitive , he could only work as far as a cop can under laws, procedures and regulations that are not meant for the healthy, let alone the marginalized and disenfranchized.

“He took all my money.  This was after I bought us a tent when we got kicked out of the shelter.  I had no one to trust, no one, but he was there for me in a fucked up way because all he wanted was a stoned me and fucking.  We even asked the cops where we could camp but they pointed out places that were too far away for accessing facilities like mental health, food and pharmacies.  So then he dragged me to an alley downtown.  We even fucked in the alley.  This wasn’t me.  I like fucking but not when I’m high and not in back alleys.

The cop turned off the camera as thought things had wound down but just as he did that, Nancy became more coherent.  Afterwards, in my van, she said that she didn’t quite realize that everything had to be dealt with on a logical basis when it came to the law and that there is  no law for the emotions.  She said she couldn’t see this before as had been healing but by healing, only working with the emotions.

I told Nancy there was an article in the Georgia Straight by a woman who advises that mothers don’t put their sons in hockey as rape occurs so often, not just with boys but man on man action too, to give a slight porn tilt to the facts.  This woman says we live in a rape society.  She’s right.  From phallic missiles to drilling for oil by sticking diamond tipped drills into Mother Earth,  we rape everyday , everything.  The prick rules while the vagina is culled from the frey as a pussy , twat, or cunt.  Perhaps many men ultimatley wants to have a dink so big he can fuck himself up his own ass.

We drove along East Hastings, slowly, as I wanted to see if anything that had been stolen out of my van by ass nose crackheads may be being boosted.  I doubted it as it had been a few weeks already, but there was that little shred of hope.

Parked in front of the Sally Ann hotel, I ran in to grab a few things before moving the van to the parkade’s ‘random rooftop parking’ deal , but came out to find the fucking bylaw officer had had it towed.  Christ!
