This poem talks about how women always ask the writer how she attracts men. She tells us that she's not model size, but its the fire in her eyes. She goes on to say how she doesn't do anything out of the ordinary to attract men, it's just the type of person she is. Maya Angelou seems like she is trying to tell the audience, kind of narrowing it down to women, that you don't have to be something your not to attract the attention of men. Being yourself and having confidence is a woman's best quality and most men find that attractive.
