Stars and Stripes
There’s red states and blue,
But what it all comes down to
Is the votes of whites.
I’ve been a big fan of Adrienne Rich since my sophomore year of college in Baltimore, and my copy of The Fact of a Doorframe is much-loved indeed. I recently discovered Marilyn Hacker, whom I am absolutely in love with. She makes me think of a female Ferlinghetti, which is fabulous. But I just realised that those two, plus Audre Lourde (also amazing) are the only lesbian poets I know. Anyone have a favourite to share?
