Produktbeschreibung
This feisty and sensuous collection of poetry includes powerful poems about the solidarity of women, the female elders of the poet's own family, and the desire for male difference.

Whether writing about history, family, black lives, love, or sexual passion, Opal Palmer Adisa has an acute eye for the contraries of experience. A number of poems exhibit a witty dance between food and sexuality, but within this focus on the physical, there is also a keen sense of the oppression of the female body. In her poem "Bumbu Clat," for example, she explores the deformation of a word that originally signified sisterhood to become part of the most misogynist curses in Jamaican society.
