Have you ever thought of
female genital mutilation?

No? Me neither, until
a woman was sharing
with me, on NPR, which
came on in our car, which
is blue and runs on electricity-

not NPR but our car. It was used,
deemed not enough power,
too particular, expensive
to maintain. Or maybe
it was seen as a threat-

someone yelled at me
at school drop off. I
am a challenge, maybe?
A threat, maybe? No,
not the car, my possession

of female genitalia.
