The way you structured your sentence, Coleen, you make it sound like Dunn's mother exposed her breasts after she died. I guess you meant to say Dunn revealed, after his mother's death, the fact that his mother had exposed herself to him. Revise your sentences before you go pointing fingers. By the way, Stephen Dunn is a fantastic poet.

This poem is spectacular, and rather than blaspheming her name, I think he exalts his mother and her candidness at sharing the really tough things to share, without shame or diapproval. "(she)permits me to love women easily", shows the poets gratitude towards his passed mother.
