My flatmate has a large collection is fascinating, brilliant, hilarious and intriguing books, pamphlets, instructions on life and other paper-based products. She's just dug one out called Moonflower - A Manual of Menstrual Mysteries. This is a fantastic home-produced manual which has had us in tears of mirth for about an hour. Here is a small extract:
Heartbeat of fertility!
Invoke the new reality!
Awake the inner power!
The lotus is in flower!
The ocean ever roaring!
How many exclamation marks does one need?? And Vesuvius outpouring???? What is this, the Exorcist?
Another rather disturbing rhyme:
The Wine of Life
Claret wine, securely lapped
Unique vintage of a single earth.
Drink deep of scarlet
From the sacred chalice.
Good grief. Is it me or is this rather sexually dubious?
