Birth: A Review of Georgia O’Keeffe
 
So I’m writing here, as one of the left-overs, one of those weirdos, the ones who shave their heads, those who don’t know how to dress, those who worry that they stink, those with rotten teeth, those who don’t know how to go about things, are never given presents by men, those who fuck anyone who’ll have them. –Virginie Despentes
 
The vagina that grew teeth in that movie and started to bite off dicks, had been raped. I remember feeling so disappointed in the film because I have been waiting my entire life for a vagina with teeth that bites off dicks just because it can.

THE HALL OF MIRRORS
 
Globality
 
Funhouse of fury
 
Tell my fingers
 
which way to twist
 
wet soft cave
 
falling
 
birth, still me.
 
Fill.
 
Motherland Plea
 
Intimidated by your intelligence and success you were never real to me.
 
Intimidated by your intelligence and success you were never real to me.
 
Intimidated by your intelligence and success you were never real to me.
 
I was so intimidated by your intelligence I became a magician.
 
I was so intimidated by your intelligence I became an Olympian.
 
I was so intimidated by your intelligence I transformed a philosopher.
 
So intimidated that I shrank like the dying lung of something on it’s way out of this world consciousness. The soft tusk, the white paw, the bald eagle. It will hang like smog.
 
Wither like hedonists and turn our back on prayer, white chalky wind, swept from the dark faces of ghosts. This cactus glows beneath the moon.
