Three Months



Month three. Negative.

My period arrives while we sleep together in a king bed on the big island of Hawai’i. Rain falls outside, and the humidity comes into the room through the open window.

The cramps tear at my body. I move onto the floor into child’s pose, breathing in and out, waiting for the pain to subside.

What is the point of all of this, if it won’t even take?
