Poetry is action, poetry is speaking out, poetry is reasoning, poetry is healing, poetry is offering space and unsilencing, poetry is activating and manifesting spirit, poetry is walking with spirit for me. “Poetry is not a luxury” as Audre Lorde says – it is vital for our existence – especially as women of color.
