Fantasizing Motherhood in 'Under the Covers'
This is the fantasy of motherhood that shamefully weeped from my rock solid breasts with no mouth to feed. This is the performance that could only happen once my pre-stretched stomach produced a breathing child, or two. This is the confused longing to escape achieved motherhood, an escape akin to a sexual fantasy that only works if it never happens.
