Reviews for The Horror of Having Hips
talktome chapter 1 . 6/30/2010
Very clever. I would have never pegged an artichoke as a comparison to sex...but you do it very well.
Faithless Juliet chapter 1 . 5/10/2010
This might just bey favorite from you. The comparisons and metaphors were right on. Your voice is ay one both in awe and frightened of the sex within you. Keep up the good work, and post more soon.

Thanks for the review, first of all. Im glad you liked my poem.

I really like this. Its very confronting, and brutally honest and i think that we need a bit more of that in the world.

love the comparison of an artichoke to sex.

both evocative and contemplative.

your work is all so interesting that i've read so far.

the first two lines of the second stanza:

Sometimes, we buy orgasms like we buy artichokes-

wearing tight blue jeans that flatten our stomachs and flatten our hips

are perfect. that is definitely the point at which i accepted your metaphor completely, and fell in love with the cleverness of it all.
