(this one was published in The Venice Beachhead
around ’75. Read an obit in a New Mexico
restaurant about a midwife that had passed on…
4,000 deliveries? Had to write about that!)

-María Placenta,
former midwife,
is dead at 91,
having retired
20 years ago
after at least
4,000 deliveries…

-Among the pallbearers
were several persons
whose umbilical cords
she had severed,
including a 7th Day insomniac,
a paratrooper drop-out,
a left-shoe fetishist
and a premature adult…

-In lieu of flowers,
relatives request
a donation to C.O.M.E.
(Council on Militant Eroticism).
