This is the piece where Soma found her voice and started to yell. She found a wood crate on the side of the road, strapped it into her car in the most dangerous way possible and somehow got it home, then poured her heart out about a very nuanced experience with her X-husband Fat Mike and a much deeper experience of taking back the idea of “Daddy”. The tattoo photo is from the night she was tattooed on the lip with this ownership ritual. The mark means something different to her now. This is for everyone who wants to take back ‘Daddy”.

“He assured me it was ok.  I said, this is more than a wedding ring. You’re marking me. You’ll have to cut off my lip if you decide you want to leave. He laughed. We both did. I think we did a line.  Maybe a shot. David Bowie crooned in the background as he revealed the wet tender pink of my lower lip.  I sat perfectly still under the vibrations.  I felt held. It wasn’t enough pain. I wanted it to last. My mouth is where I speak.  I gave that to him.  It’s where I eat, drink, kiss, love, such, scream.  I gave that up to a “DADDY” in an instant because I was offered, not because I asked.  That says something about me.  About the primal intrinsic me. I don’t like looking at this.  It fucking hurts.  So it’s important.  This is my mark now. I’m taking it back.  It doesn’t belong to him anymore. It doesn’t belong to the ghost of my needs.  IM DADDY. WHY?! BECAUSE I SAID SO.”
