femininity by Beverly J. Wilcox


i smell things way stronger than many do, on account i have nonallergic rhinitis, am chemically sensitive, in a perpetual state of nausea.

i also am highly strung, prone to cravings, and move more slowly than my thoughts.

so, basically i am a pregnant woman with no fetus.

"when the nose knows", as they say...

i have a tho minimally animal smell coming from one of my lymph nodes, maybe, under the arm, in the pit i guess.

but u wldnt smell it i bet.

(this has not been a poem).
