[I, Being Born a Woman]

I knew I felt my creative juices flowing. I mean, they are constantly flowing but I knew it was time for them to come into fruition. This was a little risque, even for me but I like it.Themes I had in mind for this project: art, sex, beauty, femininity, human sexuality, sensuality, and human nature. I'm pushing the envelope; embracing beauty in every form (yes, sexuality is beauty) and exploring it in all its glory.



[I, Being Born a Woman and Distressed]

I, being born a woman and distressed
By all the needs and notions of my kind,
Am urged by your propinquity to find
Your person fair, and feel a certain zest
To bear your body's weight upon my breast:
So subtly is the fume of life designed,
To clarify the pulse and cloud the mind,
And leave me once again undone, possessed.
Think not for this, however, the poor treason
Of my stout blood against my staggering brain,
I shall remember you with love, or season
My scorn wtih pity, -- let me make it plain:
I find this frenzy insufficient reason
For conversation when we meet again.
