Hormones Rip Soft Hearts

All monthly petals counted, plucked,

womb waste trickles down hidden duct:

“empty out again”- your uterus instructs.

 

Awkward circumstance, awful ache,

calendars created for womens sake

  • hundreds of eggs must surely break.

Society censors: body-talk taboo,

even medical men haven’t a clue.

Is moon-shadow really lover to you?

 

Hormones rip soft hearts to tatters:

temper tantrums, tears easily splatter;

men squeamish over monthly matters.

Women belittled for menses blood clot:

petty persecution, mockery, unhappy lot;

where the teen dreams of Camelot?

 

Creator-planned, no pathological part,

lovingly moulded such maternal heart;

sex-special this blood, pure from start…

Artist statement: Still lifes inspired by menstrual blood. This biological process is often seen as shameful, or disgusting –  but the truth is that in this case, blood represents life, and I think it can be beautiful.
