Recipes (To Julie Dash & Other Inspirational Black Women)

The women before me stored recipes in their womb

How to curse

How to heal

How to speak your mind

How to pay homage

How to make lemonade with life’s lemons

And today I continue to weave

 to cook

to exist

To breathe

To make daughters from the dust
