Period Piece: Another collaboration with Lily

As part of the system that gives us LIFE, about half of our population goes through a monthly period of pain and bleeding, and we tell them to… push it away, out of sight, out of mind?

Obviously, I’m not talking about blatantly copying the exact work of someone else and presenting it as your own -that would be theft-, but rather using the ideas of others to draw inspiration from for new work.
