African-american poetry: an anthology, 1773-1927 dover thrift editions - African American Poets | Famous Black Poets



Patricia Smith : “‘52’ was penned mid-way through my 52nd year, when—while feeling pretty damned good about how energized and vigorous I felt and how well my creative life was going—I discovered that my nether-regions had been overrun by gray pubic hairs. That was not a happy moment. You can’t exactly pluck those babies. I wanted to write a poem that made me feel sexy, despite—well, despite. At the same time, I had become enamored of the ghazal, an ancient Persian poetic form, and the two—topic and structure—felt perfect for one another.” ( website )

Ian Williams : “Last month it seemed like a good idea to join some friends and write a poem a day for an entire month. It still seems like a good idea—so far, so good—but I don’t know for how long. Everyone keeps telling me that eventually I’ll be spitting out phlegm and calling it juice. If you haven’t yet, try the punch.” ( website )

Her skin aflame in the merriment, Ruth fights sleep in her booth. Stooped peddler of scratch-and-scratch-and scratch one more time, she is circled by tossed-off tickets, cups of dying ice, losers’ spittle. Chemical hair rides high on her head.

Wildflowers grow flawlessly
Surrounded by colored lies
Adults breathe in tradition
Children exhale wordless sighs

The dreamless sleep in poppies
Couched in beds of loneliness
The future shreds like ribbons
Hope clings like a velvet mist

Fierce garnet-colored flames
Turn to soft flickers glowing
Crisp green ages into brown
Burdened with too much knowing
