The Vanishing Act I

One body. Two hollow spaces. Two bodily functions. The first: the epitome of femininity. The second: the opposite of femininity. Real women give birth and nice girls don’t fart.

The Vanishing Act II

Iconic images of mothers-to-be: The hands carefully placed over the stretched stomach. The woman in white surrounded by nature. The naked celebrity covering her breasts.

The Vanishing Act III

My bloated stomach. Air trying to find its way out. An illusion of life yet to come. Hands on my stomach. Wreath of flowers in my hair. Breasts covered by lingering limbs. Exploring motherhood without becoming a mother.
