my vagina

as a woman,
new to the role
i like to put ice
on my nipples.
and pretend that i feel
something. stick things;
fingers, strange men,
phallic objects
into my penis, no-
my vagina.
my vagina.  
strange to say,
i have always worn dresses,
now i wear them cut above the knee
and let them sling down to
slut-extremes showing off
my perfect breasts.  
men (and women) now stare at me
i feel it,
some new formed perception
curving to my ass and i lean over
in the market and can
feel the pubescent minors
drift my way,
i imagine it makes me wet,
makes me a woman.
like my father always said i was.

This is actually rather sad, but too blunt for me to really appreciate it. Still, interesting concept - if what I'm getting from it, a sex change, is correct.

L1: "woman"

i liked this poem, a lot.  (for unconventional/uncomfortable subjects, this is really good, one of the best i've read).

L22: i'd love you to say 'supermarket' as it gives a very good image of the stereotypical woman.  sounds like it could be from the father's influence as well.
 — jenakajoffer

this is good but line 16 "slut-extremes" rethink that. I dont think it works. line 27 is great
 — Luxy

perfect. just perfect.
 — alambre

Luxy, I thought "slut-extremes" was one of the best parts of the poem
 — fireballems

slippery and very good. A nit: L 23 has a redundancy. Lines 11-12, either toss them, or stretch them: va-gi-na ( counting those deep syllables). Killer last line, which gives the reader a book in seven words.

I like your poem. A lot.

Whoa!  LOVE IT!  Very self-assured, honest writing, which is what makes poetry Poetry in my opinion.  Kinky and well expressed.  I especially dig L's 25 & 26.  L27 felt a little creepy.  Not sure if that was your intent, but overall, a great write.  Thanks!

This is a really interesting poem. I like the sadness behind it.

This is an interesting poem
A teases social construct

a) I think this is great.
b) I would consider l27, think maybe that is a different poem.
c) If they intertwine, that's cool too.

And that is purely as a poem commenter.
