New Poems in The Rumpus from Faylita Hicks

While you wait for Faylita Hicks’ powerful poetry collection, HoodWitch, check out her poems published today in The Rumpus: “All It Took to Get to You,” “For The White Girl in the Poetry Workshop Who Says I Don’t Belong Here,” and “Lil’ Mama Gets High.”

The chances are slim that I should come to you—
                                          & I gutted my way through hell to get here

                                            blood begets blood    salt-running earth    as does the gates of women

HoodWitch will be released October 2019 from Acre Books.
