Period Drama

Am not sure if the honourable Mary Oliver would approve of this one but today’s offering is all about the time of the month. I think I was premenstrual when I wrote it so it was probably quite therapeutic!

Monthly Visit

The clamping is quite a regular affair these days.

A type of monthly staple gun that

crumples my most sensitive membrane in the most despicable

fashion

Of course, the whole experience is further enhanced

by the intrusive infusion of

The Hormonal Hot Pot; a

witchy brew of dank doubt

arbitrary anxiety and

menstruated malice

and

if I’m really lucky

The Night Sweats come to play a visit

Thank goodness for the twenty one days of

respite

  1. A “full moon” poem! I’ve heard many women get their “visits” consistent with moon cycles. Your poem gives me cause to rejoice in my aging beyond those visits – THANK YOU! – but I clearly recall the drama. You captured it beautifujlly.
