Description of Identifying the Body Poetry Book

(opening poem)


I lost my husband because of my big mouth

I used my big mouth to please another man

And pleased he was, for a time. My big mouth

My two black feet, and my two black hands

My oh my, it was grand. Now I’m a loose

Horse in the valley, a filly wild

In the green green green, and nobody’s

Gonna tell me what it should mean. I’m no child

To be schooled, no no no. I won’t be told

What I must do, who I can suck, or fuck

With furious winds whipping my golden

Tail, with blue skies above, and nostrils flared

Earth gives gives gives beneath my hooves
