This is not about love

May 19, 2010

Born at a disadvantage
This double x has me messed up
Rambling teachers taught me about tubes
And journeys inside my body
That cause the curse
But that isn’t the problem
This isn’t a formal complaint against my uterus
Because I cherish it
The base of life
But decades after de Beauvoir
We are digging
Like D and C instruments
For answers in the membrane
That surrounds the medical field
Why is ovulation enough?
Books about fertility
Lunar cycles
And still more is known about the moon
Growths are nothing
Forgotten and overlooked
Until there’s nothing but headstones
They claim to worship it
And I suppose it’s only fitting
That it can kill silently
But this isn’t just about pain
It’s about that burning pleasure
The one women were denied
And even after the sexual liberation(s)
No one knows how it works
The big O hanging like a moon
And they know all about it
But nobody can explain
The female body
At least not scientifically
Only poetically
Using adjectives and colorful language
But that won’t keep anyone alive
It won’t cure unknown diseases
It won’t find nerve endings
So stop writing about it
Don’t think about looking at it
Unless you love the curves
Enough to search
Even if it means forever
