Bitches on Vaginas

by Carolyn D. Elias

I’m tired
of all these bitches bitching
about how to use my vagina.
Don’t even get me started
on these bitches bitching
about what I should do
if my vagina gets full
of babies. Bitches be baby
Crazy. Crazy. Crazy.
Sending me magazines,
blowing up my email
with pictures of how I should be
giving birth
in a hospital:
water birth,
all natural,
c-section is the devil.
‘Cause the devil made me full of babies.
Bitches gots lots to say
about how to raise babies.
Can’t turn on the TV
or go to the movies
without a granola eating vegan
or a frumpy church lady
with piles of babies
proselytizing about the right way
they used their vaginas
to repopulate the earth:
each new baby girl minted
with just the right kind of vagina.
