'Draw A Human Figure Without Lifting Your Pencil' by Laurie Marshall

This body is shaped by the children it bore. By the struggle of keeping them alive and alive and alive. This body is a wound. A carving. A bloodletting. A scar since womb-darkened eyes first focused on its breasts. A talisman. This body stretches and twists around the world’s gaze. Rejecting judgement from every quarter, it thrives. This body is shaped by gravity and loss of intimacy. Wisdom blurs the outline.
