Loose Woman by Sandra Cisneros ... I’m an aim-well, shoot-sharp, sharp-tongued, sharp-thinking, fast-speaking, foot-loose, loose-tongued, let-loose, woman-on-the-loose loose woman. Beware, honey. I’m Bitch. Beast. Macha. Wachale! Ping! Ping! Ping! I break things.

I do miss certain people. They are not bad people they just did bad things.

<3 Loose Woman by Sandra Cisneros <3 They say I’m a beast. And feast on it. When all along I thought that’s what a woman was. They say I’m a bitch. Or witch. I’ve claimed the same and never winced. They say I’m a macha, hell on wheels, viva-la-vulva, fire and brimstone, man-hating, devastating, boogey-woman lesbian. Not necessarily, but I like the compliment.

Words of wisdom from author Sandra Cisneros ('The House on Mango Street')

Words of wisdom from author Sandra Cisneros ('The House on Mango Street')

I guess my feminism and my race are the same thing to me. They’re tied in one to another, and I don’t feel an alliance or an allegiance with upper-class white women. I don’t. I can listen to them and on some level as a human being I can feel great compassion and friendships; but they have to move from their territory to mine, because I know their world. But they don’t know mine.  Sandra Cisneros, Chicana Feminist Thought

House on Mango Street ~Sandra Cisneros “I want to be like the waves on the sea, like the clouds in the wind, but I’m me. One day I’ll jump Out of my skin. I’ll shake the sky like a hundred violins.”

This. All of this. Exactly. There should be stars for great wars like ours. There ought to be awards and plenty of champagne for the survivors.
