Eating My Placenta

Eating My Placenta

Oh life, it’s bigger
It’s bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I’ve said enough

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Eating my placenta
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

– REM’s “Losing My Religion”, adapted

Thank you Margaret Romano of Sacred Beginnings and the Madison Doula Collective
