    Each day
    I awake
    To put one more thing
    Inside my vagina

    And I know
    Someday
    I will have to stop
    Walking

    Stitch up
    My private
    Opening

    Do what
    The Witch Doctor says

    And lay
    With my feet in
    Stir-ups

    On some
    Dilapidated
    Hospital bed

    Maybe then
    My vagina
    Would have said

    All
    That needed to be said....

    Then I wouldn't have to walk
    And look behind me

    I could just
    Exercise
    Vaginal sit-ups

    Let my Fallopian tubes flow

    Push the past....

    Up

    I could release all the secrets
    Down there

    Gaurded by my
    100% cotton underwear

    Because cotton originated

    Down there.....

    Inside

    A black woman's vagina

    well....

    this piece certainly brought visuals I hadn't imagined before...but that's what you do. Challenge my mental. Have me thinking about the origins of cotton...Black women...endlessly picking and packing and producing.... lint, love, life...hmmmmm

    I'm unable to articulate (and be understood here) all this means to me...but know that you provoke thought. MUCH thought, sis.

    You are deep inside the vaginal walls...so much held beyond the feminine threshold.

    thank you for this

    yes, very thought provoking, it is. you have brought me through a long journey in deep thoughts with this one...but, that's what your chronicles do. i'm always lovin' it, as you go deeper than the usual ocean of flows. keep on scribin', dear poetess.
