Read full description of the books Ihr blauer Körper:This is one of the volumes I had hoarded for National Poetry Month. Alice Walker is better known as the author of The Color Purple, but she has written quite a few poems. These span from 1965 and are highly biographical, from her trip to Kenya to her work in voter registration in Mississippi, through relationship ups and downs, up through having children. I had first skimmed through them when I was helping a friend find a poem for his mother's funeral, but getting to have a more careful reading was an even better experience.
Read the entirety of these poems:
Be Nobody's Darling, probably my favorite!
Here is a little bit from another one I liked, Rage.
"The silence between your words
rams into me
like a sword."
And this tiny part of Listen:
"Every time you say
you love me
I look for shelter."
I really liked segment vii from Exercises from Themes on Life:
"I like to see you try
to worm yourself
away from me
first you plead
as if my young heart
felt any of the tiredness
in your bones . . . "
This poem I'll include in its entirety (sensing a theme, hmm Alice?):
They say you are not for me,
and I try, in my resolved but
barely turning brain,
to know "they" do not matter,
these relics of past disasters
in march against the rebellion
of our time.
They will fail;
as all the others have:
for our fate will not be this:
to smile and salute the pain,
to limp behind their steel boot
grieving for forbidden things.
