This week, a poem by Mason Bolton
My Pussy Can Rock It
My pussy is a power pussy. My pussy is an assault survivor. My pussy soars from the ashes like a phoenix. My pussy doubles as the tiniest cock you’ve never seen. My pussy is semi-homemade. My pussy is a lighthouse.
My pussy is a good pussy. A coalition with every other pussy, every birth pussy, every manmade pussy, everyone born with what should’ve been a pussy, has been started by my pussy. My pussy could shoot out babies. But my pussy chooses not to shoot out babies like a goddamn cannon.
My pussy is a riot act. My pussy is a roost for the downfall of patriarchy. My pussy is a war zone. My pussy sneezes when I ain’t looking. My pussy likes to cross its legs. My pussy makes obscene Facebook satire. My pussy has goddamn rights.
My pussy dances to 90s one-hit wonders. My pussy doesn’t know what you’ve been doing all these years and doesn’t give a shit. My pussy doesn’t take crap, makes a trashcan fire for bullshit. My pussy is going to take a nap. My pussy is going to bust this world right goddamn open.
