"Lady in blue tubes tables white washed windows grime from age wiped over once legs spread anxious eyes crawling up on me eyes rollin in my thighs metal horses gnawin my womb dead mice fall from my mouth."

"Lady in blue
tubes tables white washed windows
grime from age wiped over once
legs spread
anxious
eyes crawling up on me
eyes rollin in my thighs
metal horses gnawin my womb
dead mice fall from my mouth."

U.S.A. / 1977

A classic choreopoem that details seven black women's experiences with racism and sexism. 20 separate poems interweave to create a performative experience that touches on black women's shared experiences of loss and love.
