For My Girls

Came across this poem today when I was prepping for Creative Writing class on Monday...thought y'all would get a kick out of it :)

Homage to My Hips

these hips are big hips.
they need space to move around in.
they don't fit into little petty places.
these hips are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
these hips are magic hips.
i have known themto put a spell on a man
and spin him like a top
--Lucille Clifton
