Body Parts (Day 19 NAMOPO)



When I lost my ovaries

years ago

Laura Corio took them away

she wore red manolos for my surgery

grateful for her shoes

and her skill a good doctor

no one will  know

you have no ovaries

she said

and in the end they

are all just body parts

not you.



Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.

  1. Me too, no ovaries
    Or uterus
    Or Gallbladder
    My mother said
    I figure you don’t have too much
    Left on the inside
    But she was wrong.
