The business of bleeding

Or: Viennese doctorship

Half a period—I’ve never had one,
but I like to think myself a doctor
having had posed as one so long—
half a period is withdrawal from childbirth,
the constant wriggle of an unlucky
person’s contained insides wishing
it wasn’t contained. Little noses,
and little ears they have to swim
in all that mess. Instead, pity them.
