Abstract

92 in waters near Madagascar and based on its ancient fossil and its actual living body, we are certain this time we are right. Christine Gelineau Pap Smear They finally cornered him with test results from the unsuspecting daughter's pap smear. It's a vulnerable feeling, lying on the narrow table for examination, naked except for the paper vest, open at the front for easy access and the sheet that is really a curtain: fit your feet into the metal stirrups and spread your legs, your own knees stretch out that sheet between your line of sight and the doctor inspecting and probing your genitals. The sheet is an adjective, modifying, naming the event ``procedural,'' ``benign.'' She was off at college. A Kansas girl, active in her church back home and I imagine she's there at the clinic to get her first prescription for birth control, she and the boyfriend shyly, responsibly edging to intercourse, now 93 the speculum tunnels into her, the pipette swabbing her most intimate chamber, the doctor, his nurse cheery, professional, her paper vest stained at the armpits with sweat but then, it's over, legs clamped, she's sitting up. Alone in the room, wiping off
