flesh of my flesh. without choice, no politics,
no ethics lives. i am not your cornfield,
not your uranium mine, not your calf
for fattening, not your cow for milking.
you may not use me as your factory.
priests and legislators do not hold shares
in my womb or my mind.
this is my body. if i give it to you
i want it back. my life
is a non-negotiable demand.”—marge piercy (via partythighs)
