vulva turning black

The No Colony Pushcart Prize Exquisite corpse thingy thing is going ahead. I want to create something that fits with all that comes before, but recognize that I am on a deadline. When I get it I will have less than a day to read, digest and consider the five-thousand or so words that precede my contribution. Then I have to write. What, I asked myself, if I am not inspired by it? What if I can’t figure out where the fuck to go? What will I do? I wrote a backup that I can use if that happens. I think it’s pretty cool. It has foreskin, a vaginal sky, rocks and mountains in it. If it doesn’t go in, then I’ll use it elsewhere. Feeling good about this.

Someone found this blog by searching “vulva turning black”. I worry for their health.


  1. hahahahahhahhha…seriously, vulva turning black, that can’t be a good thing, ever


  2. I’ve been trying to decide the same questions about what I want to write. I’d really like to write something at least somewhat cohesive with the the former, but wanting to turn it around fast enough that I don’t hold up the endeavor makes that seem unlikely. I’m even later in the list than you, so I’d have a lot more to digest.

    It’s good to see I’m not the only one actually picking at cuticles about this.


    • I just hate the idea that I could provide the weak link in something that is otherwise great.
