The Mango Poem (2014) is a moving self-portrait that explores identity and intimacy through the metaphor of a mango. Representative of the ever-evolving process of growth and transformation of living beings, Mango relishes in the nuances of personification and objectification that many girls and women experience as targets of desire. The Mango Poem integrates the multitudes of maturing bodies and invites a joyful exploration of the self as other.
