Featured Poem

a woman goes

a woman goes to the movies
a woman goes to get ready
a woman is going to ovulate
a woman is going to feel pleasure
a woman is going to ask for more
a woman is going to be crazy for you
a woman goes to sleep
a woman goes to the doctor, complaining
a woman begins noticing the growth of her stomach
a woman is going to spend nine months with a child in her belly
a woman goes to her first ultrasound
a woman goes into surgery and gets anaesthesia
a woman is going to get married have kids and take care of her husband and children
a woman goes to a healer for a serious haemorrhoid problem
a woman begins feeling abandoned
a woman begins wasting her primary follicles
a woman is going to regret it forever
a woman goes to the kennel ready to buy a dog
a woman goes to the back of the van and sits down weeping
a woman is going to put the house in order
a woman goes to the supermarket to buy provisions
a woman goes home to prepare the meal
a woman is going to stop trying to change men
a woman goes to the agency earlier
a woman goes to work, leaving the man in the kitchen
a woman goes away, leaving a gaggle of children
a woman is going to go out with someone else in the end
a woman is going to get a place in the sun
a woman is going to be able to drive in afghanistan
