"On Fertility" published in The Butter, Roxanne Gay, editor
Thanks to Roxanne Gay for publishing this essay in The Butter. It was accepted on Sunday, and published a week later. That's the kind of speedy production process that sends my head a-reeling. I so appreciate the chance to share my experiences with other people. This is a picture of me in the graveyard in Milford, Ireland, where my great-grandparents were buried (though this isn't their plot). I miscarried about a week later. 1998.
