How Heaux Tales Taught Me to Shed Shame

Like Jazmine Sullivan’s “The Other Side,” a song from her latest EP, Heaux Tales, I saw a life outside the confines of conservatism—the length of my skirt and the policing of what I was allowed to say and do.

Just come through my door

take off my clothes

and turn on the red light.

Gotta stop getting fucked up

What did I have in my cup?

I don’t know where I woke up

Okay, I’ma get my own, and I’ma be able to stand on my own
