Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

The Clitoris


is 9 cm deep
in the pelvis.


Most of it scrunched & hidden.


New studies show
the shy curl
to be longer
than the penis,
but like Africa,
the continent,
it is never drawn
to size.


Mapmakers, and others, who draw
important things for a living,
do not want us to know this.

In some females,
        the clitoris stretches,
        unfurls,
        8 in,
        with 2 to 3.5
        in, shaft free,
        outside the body.

        The longest clitoris of record
        has been found in the blue whale.

In water
desire can rise,
honor sea levels,
ignore land-locked
cartographers.


In water,
desire refuses retreat.
