New poems every Sunday.

"I think of you every five minutes.
The other four are sorry they forgot
your name."
"When I met death too early
I did not pray for you, or beg for time
to peel back like muscle from the bone.
I thought of our child who never was.
Her hair like mine, a blackberry bush of curls.
Your half moon eyes shining
from her face, always giving too much away.
It is my swan song. My final scream.
The cry of women, my good lord."

Please write a piece about the vagina, I'm sure that would be amazing

Thank you, but I think enough white women have made vagina-related art. I don’t feel the need to contribute. Plus, I don’t trust myself not to somehow link vaginas with womanhood in a poem, and I don’t want to do that

interestingly enough, Clementine von Radics, vaginas ARE linked to womanhood.

Let me clarify: I did not want to write a poem in which vaginas are intrinsically linked to womanhood. Your relationship with your body and how it relates to your gender is totally valid, but vaginas and womanhood are not necessarily linked.

That being said, a lot of the responses to this post are transphobic and rude, and y’all need to cut that shit out
