Kitchenette Building

Kitchenette Building

  

by Gwendolyn Brooks

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG-13

While this poem doesn't have any actual sex in it, we've got to admit that "satisfying a man" has a sexual overtone that's hard to ignore. Cover your younger sister or brother's ears for that line, but otherwise this poem should be appropriate viewing for all ages.
