Heather A. Sullivan


Allow me to bust the myth that
my hysterical uterus needs
your regulatory help.
No shrinking violet,
I keep smacking away your
unwelcome advances towards
measuring my cervix for a
restraining collar.
Tread carefully or the strings from
your Margaret Sanger marionette
will tangle in your rush to shut the
cattle car door.
