Like I’ve Got Diamonds
The whole verse goes like this:
Does my sexiness upset you?Maya Angelou, “Still I Rise” in Phenomenal Woman (1994)
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Seems like this poem, published over forty years ago, will never get old.
