Homage to My Hips

It is summer, hot and horny, and I am on a roll. So I am going to continue this theme of beauty, attraction, seduction, sex, love and self-love until I run out of content — or steam, whichever comes first.

 

Homage to My Hips

By Lucille Clifton 

 

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

these hips are magic hips.

i have known them

to put a spell on a man and

spin him like a top!
