‘Hanging Fire’ by Audre Lorde is an incredibly relevant poem. The poet explores a young girl’s perception of her body and life.
Lorde’s ‘If You Come Softly’ is a thoughtful poem in which the poet’s speaker talks to a listener about the future and their relationship.
‘Power’ is based on a real-life murder and court case. This poem was first published in 1978 but is just as relevant today as it was then.
