MESSY THINGS, PEPPER TREES by Judy Reeves
I am in the recovery room with my legs propped open and a sun lamp warming the torn place. If the doctor had arrived sooner he could have made a neat cut to open my vagina enough for the baby’s head and shoulders to fit through without tearing, but the nurses weren’t taught how to make the cut. Plus they didn’t have the knives.
