Do You Know How Awful It Is?

by Lucy Hitz

My pussy smells like madness
like laying down in the field together
looking at what we thought
was the Milky Way which you spotted
and I felt nothing
but you did
you did
you did
I tell myself
That was the pill
That was the chemicals
how awful
pussy feels like
when you swirl it on a joystick
pussy feels like
