“A self-described ” Black feminist lesbian poet warrior mother”, Audre Lorde is famous for having a way with words. Her poetry has revolutionized the world in countless and unimaginable ways. Here is a poem by her:
The black unicorn is greedy.
The black unicorn is impatient.
‘The black unicorn was mistaken
for a shadow or symbol
through a cold country
where mist-painted mockeries
of my fury.
It is not on her lap where the horn rests
but deep in her moonpit growing.
The black unicorn is restless
the black unicorn is unrelenting
the black unicorn is not
- The Black Unicorn”
