Shelves: poetry
Two-Headed Woman is divided into three parts: "homage to mine", "two-headed woman", and "the light that came to lucille clifton". All of which demonstrate the esteemed poet's starkness and profundity.

from "homage to mine"...
these hips are big hips.
they need space to
move around in.
they don't fit into little
pretty places. these hips
are free hips.
they don't like to be held back.
these hips have never been enslaved,
they go where they want to go
they do what they want to do.
these hips are mighty hips.
