100 Things: Poem 41  



{Take the 100 Things challenge!}


Hi yall! I haven't done since April according to my last post. I haven't been reading as much poetry and most of you know this year has been hectic for me, but I would like to pick this back up. I was just flipping through the collected poems by Audre Lorde and I came across the poem But What Can You Teach My Daughter. I had originally been seeking Hanging Fire, but it didn't really have that umph. When I really like a poem I have a visceral reaction to it. I looked on the next page and started to read this one and I had that: OHHH. I make that sound whenever I read a poem that really has that umph at least for me haha. So here it is.
