    • POEM: Homage To My Hips by Lucille Clifton (9/14/2009 9:19:00 PM)

      In the poem 'Homage to my Hips', Lucille Clifton shows that she has a very positive image of her hips and her body. It's a big problem with this generation that most women feel they are constantly being judged by their appearance. Media now a days makes it hard on women to be who they are and really be proud of themselves for what God has given them. Lucille Clifton really proves with this poem that she is proud of what God has given her and is not afraid to be herself. She is not self-conscience in the least bit because she discusses in the beginning of the poem 'these hips are big hips'. She continues on to say that 'they don't fit into little petty places', meaning that she doesn't want to be associated with the people that focus on detail and the people that spend all of their time judging other people's looks.

      In line 9, she states ' these hips are mighty hips' which shows that she knows they are a very powerful thing for a women to have. In lines 13 to 15, she reveals why she thinks they're so powerful by stating 'I have known them to put a spell on a man and spin him like a top! ' This statement is amazing because it shows the power that all women have on men, and that only some women have been lucky enough to master.
