Lima Bean

Mom wanted to name me Courtney Love but I came out a boy. She tried to stuff me back in but the nurse said what’s done is done so she stopped. Out of revenge she wrote Lima Bean on my birth certificate. It wasn’t my fault, I said. She’s not amused with things beyond her control. Damn right it’s your fault, she said. You and your fucking penis’s fault.

-Dedicated to Courtney Love (Please, find your marbles and sing for us again.)
