DISPOSAL by Juliet Cook

Two weeks ago I took advantage of Hyacinth Girl Press’s sale and purchased a copy of a chapbook called 13 Designer Vaginas. I devoured it. Twice. Imagine my joy at realizing the author of said chapbook had a submission sitting in the coffers of The Plot!


In one dream scene, it was a bag full of rye bread.
In the next dream scene, it was a bag full of rye dick.
A big dildo in a bread bag or a real dick in a doggy bag
ready to be shoved into the trash compacter.

He stuck his dick in when she told him not to,
but after that happened, why did she marry him?

Whose fault is it, if I get raped in my dreams
and then when I’m awake, I destroy men
and don’t even realize what I’m doing or why
my mind is diverging them into torn and broken

rubble stuffed in one sandwich bag after another?
It’s not like they’re all just pieces of meat and

it’s not like we’re nothing but holes but
in one dream scene, I stand up for myself
and tell a guy to shut his mouth and the next thing I know
there’s a dick in every one of my holes to show me

what my mouth is good for. “Go ahead and try
to speak for yourself now” he growls into me.
