24 Curves Poster

What comes to mind when you think of curves?  Maybe it’s the bend in a country road, life’s little curve balls, or better yet, the lovely shape of the female form.  I’ve always loved the poem “Phenomenal Women” by Maya Angelou and that is what came to mind for me.

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.     I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size     But when I start to tell them,    They think I’m telling lies.    I say,    It’s in the reach of my arms,  The span on my hips,    The stride of my step,     The curl of my lips.  I’m a women     Phenomenally.     Phenomenal woman,       That’s me.

I walk into a room    Just as cool as you please,    And to a man,  The fellows stand or     Fall down on their knees.    Then they swarm around me,    A hive of honey bees.    I say,    It’s the fire in my eyes,    And the flash of my teeth,    The swing in my waist,    And the joy in my feet.    I’m a woman     Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,    That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered      What they see in me.    They try so much     But they can’t touch     My inner mystery.    When I try to show them,    They say they still can’t see.    I say,    It’s in the arch of my back,    The sun of my smile,    The ride of my breasts,     The grace of my style.    I’m a woman     Phenomenally.     Phenomenal woman,    That’s me.

Now you understand     Just why my head’s not bowed.     I don’t shout or jump about     Or have to talk real loud.     When you see me passing,     It ought to make you proud.     I say,    It’s in the click of my heels,    The bend of my hair,     the palm of my hand,    The need for my care.    ‘Cause I’m a woman      Phenomenally.  Phenomenal woman,    That’s me.

-Maya Angelou-
