CURSE by @SlimSiren
Clutching my white fluffy teddy, I watched Aunty writhe and weep on the floor. I don’t know why she’s screaming. I don’t know what to say to make it better. I can’t seem to find the right words. They must be fighting through the heavy fear in my throat. I open my mouth over and over again.
Somebody, please come. Somebody. Please. Come.
But nobody comes.
Nobody comes because my mouth wouldn’t open. My teddy’s face is wet with my tears. I can’t seem to…
…Understand why Chizoba is screaming like a banshee. I thought the world had come to an end, or something had happened to Ngozi, and I ran out of the room like a mad woman, only to find blood all over the place. She’s twenty-two, for Christ sakes! Menstrual pains, so? What’s new? She has had this for 12 years x 12 months x 4 days x 24 hours x 60 mins x 60 seconds of her damn life. She has no right to scare my children like this! See little Oma…
…Rocking back and forth on the bed. I can’t understand what is going on.
Mummy is standing by the door.
Mummy has come
I don’t know what is happening.
Aunty is just crying.
Please take aunty to the hospital mummy.
Please I don’t want aunty to die.
I love aunty ChiChi.
Stop looking at her like that.
Come let’s take her to the hospital please mummy please…
Stop, please, dear Lord of God, dear Lord, God, please just make it stop. I will give anything. I will dedicate my life to you. I will stop cheating in class, I promise.
Just make it stop!
Oh! Mama-put rice, I will never eat you! Your pepper has put fire in my loins!
Extra cube of sugar, I curse you! Lord God of Moses, of Israel, of Meso-ginibuahagi-phet, I beg you! Take this away from me! I can’t…
…Endure. I. Try. To. Endure. I. Mask. My. Pain. Perfume. Pads. Perseverance. Every. Month.
I. Have. To. Endure. Dear. God. Please. I. Need. To. Endure. This. Curse.
The Sex Worker By @Otase
Oohh the women love me because I please their vaginas good.
Their husbands call me and when they hear I’m a woman, they apologize for the mistake.
They don’t know.
They can’t wrap their heads around their women cheating on them with another woman.
But it’s true. The women love me because I please their vagina good.
Especially the older ones.
Moaning in Yoruba as I stick my tongue in places. Finding their g-spots and playing with their beautiful clits
Telling me how their men don’t make them feel like this.
Most of their husbands don’t even know where the clit is.
I can’t blame them
I think back to the days of an accountant and I laugh.
Sitting behind computers, crunching numbers in my high power suits, with one boring scarf after another placed ever so prim and proper, my vagina never getting to breathe.
Then one day, my bitch of a boss called me into her office, and seduced me. When she tied me up with my scarf, I never saw scarves or vaginas the same way again.
She explored my vagina. Made it happy.
Now I explore vaginas.
Being paid for this exploration is just the icing on my wonderful cake.
Most of these women never used to moan.
Can you believe it?
Stifling their moans like it was dirty. But now I make them moan in all kinds of languages.
I sit back and make them touch themselves, make them find their own moans, sometimes they even find their own screams.
“Do that thing again…”
I make them beg for it
“The thing with your tongue”
“You mean like this?” As I do something else that makes them exclaim
I take my job very seriously.
I love to make Vaginas happy.
Hey people, so, two more scenes from the VM Remix.. Today, we look at another aspect of ‘womanhood’ that has been seriously supressed in these parts (also maybe due to our culture) – menstration & all that goes with it. Then scene 6, well, some might say isn’t for societies like ours but I’ll leave that to you guys as you speak your mind using the comment box. Cheers.
