There Are More Beautiful Things Than Beyoncé (Morgan Parker)

"Jeweled lips, we’re rich We’re everyone. We have ideas and vaginas, history and clothes and a mother."

"Jeweled lips, we’re rich

We’re everyone. We have ideas and vaginas,

history and clothes and a mother."

U.S.A. / 2017

This is the new collection of poems out from Morgan Parker, a fabulous young poet and the author of Other People's Comfort Keep Me Up At Night (2015). This book is on my to-buy list. It features poems on pop-culture, race, politics, beauty and black womanhood. A reviewer on GoodReads said that if you aren't in-the-know about the black girl lingo, trends, and references, you can easily get lost in the sauce. Happy to hear that. Sounds like this collection is F.U.B.U. Can't wait to get my copy!
