“Somebody Almost Walked Off with All of My Stuff.”

A poem by Ntozake Shange. Excerpt from “For Coloured Girls Who Considered Suicide When the Rainbow was Enough.”

I want my flea bit leg back. Yes, all my imperfections, I want them because they are me. Don’t go showing them off to strangers. Those imperfections are mine. Just like the perfections. That is all my stuff.
