The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde

The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde
Lorde, Audre

The Collected Poems of Audre Lorde celebrates the undeniable voice of a woman who wrote, in the words of Adrienne Rich, "poems of elemental wildness and healing, nightmare and lucidity ... a poetry which extends beyond white Western politics, beyond the anger and wisdom of Black America ... These are poems which blaze and pulse on the page."

When I Grow up I Want to Be A List of Further Possibilities

When I Grow up I Want to Be A List of Further Possibilities
Chen, Chen, 1989-

"In this ferocious and tender debut, Chen Chen investigates inherited forms of love and family -- the strained relationship between a mother and son, the cost of necessary goodbyes -- all from Asian American, immigrant, and queer perspectives. Holding all accountable, this collection fully embraces the loss, grief, and abundant joy that come with charting one's own path in identity, life, and love. When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities. To be a season of laughter when my father says his coworker is like that, he can tell because the guy wears pink socks, see, you don't, so you can't, you can't be one of them. To be the one my parents raised me to be. A season from the stormiest planet. A very good feeling with a man. Every feeling, in pink shoes. Every step, hot pink."--Provided by publisher.
