Breast Painting
"Breast Painting," 1997 11 feet, acrylic and pen on paper


I AM SO MUCH MORE THAN MY BODY PARTS
I TRY TO BE THE BEST PARTS OF MY HUMANITY
my breast are beautiful
why do you want to touch my breasts and pretend
they are not me
my humanity?
you want to touch but not touch
my breasts are beautiful
I love to touch them
I know people want to touch my breasts but not me
my breasts can sustain life
breastfeeding is so beautiful men can't help envy
the power of women
our bodies to co-create life
to carry our babies in our tummies
to feed our babies with our beautiful breasts
why idiolize a body part
why not celebrate humanity at it's best?
why dehumanize?
why so much violence and rage towards women?
do men see themselves as body parts
is that why they attempt to "genitalize" us
fraction us, because they feel so incomplete
