    • POET: Ho Xuan Huong (11/25/2009 5:05:00 PM)

      On Sharing a Husband

      Screw the fate that makes you share a man.
      One cuddles under cotton blankets; the other's cold.
      Every now and then, well, maybe or maybe not,
      once or twice a month, oh, it's like nothing.
      You try to stick to it like a fly on rice
      but the rice is rotten. You slave like the maid,
      but without pay. If I had known how it would go
      I think I would have lived alone

    • POEM: Homage To My Hips by Lucille Clifton (11/25/2009 11:46:00 AM)

      Homage to my Hips

      By Lucille Clifton

      She uses a figurative metaphor “Hips” to represent her personal characteristics. She has powerful, mighty, and magic hips. She is proud of her body. She is an independent woman not to enslave to anyone even her husband. She can sway her husband around like a top. The broader mean is that “man” stand for people. She can sway people conception about her, her race, her identity as a black woman. Her Hips need more space to move around means very little in physical aspect but it has more meaning as she, a black woman, would like to have more freedom, freedom to go outside socially than to be confined in a limited space at home.
