    Default Homage to My Hips - Lucille Clifton (1987)

    these hips are big hips
    they need space to
    move around in.
    they don't fit into little
    petty 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.
    these hips are magic hips.
    i have known them
    to put a spell on a man and
    spin him like a top!

    What Her Hips Needed
    She was wild in a way that was swaying and ancient
    It was not a crazy whipping about of emotion
    But a building swell and a powerful and slow release
    But most did not understand this
    So when they touched her hips
    They just held on
    But she needed someone
    To do so much more than hold on
    She needed that slow
    So slow you didn’t know it was happening
    Slow steering
    Gentle erosion
    Like the water does to the mountain
    The wind to the desert
    She needed those ancient drums
    To keep her rhythm
    To loose her demons
    To be free

    Swing Them Hips, Girl

    Swing them hips, girl, let them stare,
    Just pretend that they're not there.
    Dance around, like never before,
    Some jealous, most can’t ignore.
    Swing them hips, girl, dance away,
    You just don't care what they say.
    Ignore the people, ignore the thirst,
    Dance until your organs burst.
    Swing them hips, girl, let them stare,
    Just pretend that they’re not there.
