    And the polemic phrase "rosted shame" reminds me a sort of vision of a person who has his/her hand on his/her face, indicating the dramatization of a feeling as of innocent shame as disgrace for a happening. It could be a vision of a moment in which a person,a child doing it on the sidewalk in a road trip for example.
