Thou Shalt Not be Ashamed

BA, some of your personal quotes washed over me as I read these lines.

This is taken from a poem by Cherrie Moraga, "It Got Her Over."

She had never been ashamed of her face.

Her lust, yes
Her bad grammar, yes
but never, her face
recently taken to blushing
as if the blood wanted
to swallow
the flesh.
