Her Body

This is for women Everywhere. Your body is yours. Your body is amazing. You are powerful.

“Her Body”

Her body is not on display

For you to critique like

A specimen

Pinned on a board.


Her body is not a mannequin,


And never deviating from

Public demand.


Her body is not a machine

Which does what you wish

When and how

Never inconveniencing you.


Her body is living

And attenuates and elaborates

In its knowing

And is good.


Her body is like nothing

You have ever seen before

Or will again.

Her body defies you.


~Shelly Johnson
