I SEE MEATUS: SUBURBIA
"The urethra, which is the last part of the urinary tract, traverses the corpus spongiosum and its opening, known as the meatus, lies on the tip of the glans penis. It is a passage both for urine and for the ejaculation of semen."
Having spent the better part of my formative years in the protective womb of an intimate suburban cul-du-sac, this inverted erection of sun-bleached sidewalk both arouses and terrifies. Just like the narrow one-eyed oculus that welcomes both piss and cum into the world, Suburbia invites an indeterminate fluent void populated by familial exuberance and civic avoidance.
Phew. Creative writing summer school project DONE! Image courtesy of BSD reader (and fellow suburbanite?) Shrader.
