The poem I am reciting is called Whispering With Caridad Later That Day, written by Elizabeth Acevedo. The theme is lust and shame because Xiomara is telling Caridad about a boy she likes in school and Caridad is shaming her for lusting.
Caridad has been taught that lusting is bad and that she should wait for marriage but Xiomara goes against this because she has found a boy. Xiomara is trying to tell Caridad that it is ok and normal for a girl to lust and that it is natural. Caridad disagrees and wants to follow what the church and her family have taught her.
