We start the dialogue hearing the last word close itself

first vagina yawn

the mood swing is mine, ok, fine
every piece of angst
pressed again and

(you push me to avow
lack of love
pounce pounce

second vagina yawn

lack of love
is not lack of love
is a taut Wednesday
is as common as rain

(you glimpse far
down the road
you young
me suddenly old)

ok, lack of love

comprehensive vagina

positions herself and shuts up
