(Excerpt from my book "Lemonade Street")

I am not defined by my breasts
or the shape of my face

I am not defined by my walk
or the graceful length of my arms

I am not defined by my eyes
or the smile on my face

I am not defined by my butt
the one thing that seems to drive you crazy

I am not defined by my ancestors
Nor the friends who’ve forever held on tight

I am not defined by society
Woman is only a five letter word

I am not defined by who and what loves me
what I love defines who I am

I am not defined by your thoughts
they are very inadequate, they never could be real
I am defined by what it is am not, all that I am and everything in between
that is my definition of me

(Who are you?)

Ok, poetess, but I'd say you are all of what you poemed and then some,
and if a part of you drives me crazy in a good way, well I guess I'd
better stop here, I think you got the point. Anyway great verse
