Vulva

A poem by Get Lippy Ambassador and Poet, Hollie McNish

my granny will not say that word

or not name that place on fear of hell

 

my mother is nurse

but finds it terrible to say as well

 

i forced it for my daughter

but stuttered ‘volvo’ for at least two years

 

my daughter, dancing naked,

sings it jokingly for all to hear

 

no idea the length of time this took
