Poem excerpt from For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide / When the Rainbow Is Enuf by Ntozake Shange:
sechita’s legs slashed
furiously thru the cracker nite/ & gold pieces hittin the
makeshift stage/ her thighs/ they were aimin coins tween her
thighs/ sechita/ egypt/ goddess/ harmony/ kicked viciously
thru the nite/ catchin stars tween her toes.
