A Space for Women of the World
I spend much of my adult life by pouring larger, economy-sized containers into smaller, more manageable containers. A gallon-sized jug of white vinegar into a handle for the countertop. The generic brand of Fresh Mint mouthwash into a tall flask that lives under my sink, for easy access. I think of pouring a giant container of feelings (lye), funneling into a smaller, manageable drain. Out of my body, down the hairy hole.
