The Black Unicorn Poems Summary ´ 104 Rich continues Refusing to be circumscribed by any simple identity Audre Lorde writes as a Black woman a mother a daughter a Lesbian a feminist a visionary; poems of elemental wil. These poems are like shards of glass refracting the blurred image of some sombre new insight into the human condition the agony of love the pangs of coming to grips with the idea of racial segregation in a world one previously thought had no demarcations the pervasive pessimism of living as reaffirmed by the morning newspaper an elegy to the memories of a childhood friend whose time on earth ran out too soon the melancholic ruminations of a prostitute the absurdity of children of today being raised like slaughterhouse pigs to be sent to the war front tomorrow Coming in and out of citiesuntouched by their magicI think without feelingthis is what men dowho try for some connectionand failand leavefive dollars on the table If the annals of literature are to be consulted most of these are time worn subjects which other renowned poets have regurgitated throughout their distinguished careers after molding them in accordance with their perceptions of the world and its many idiosyncrasies And yet Audre Lorde s words imbued with despondency regret hope and fortitude at the same time tempt you to read them again and again Her lines flow effortlessly despite their innate simplicity maintaining an enviable rhythmic symmetry rendering the reader s tendency to puzzle over esoteric references unnecessary since there are almost none There are a handful of poems here in praise of the female and androgynous forms of divinity worshipped by the inhabitants of the historical kingdom of Dahomey and the Yoruba people of western Nigeria which bring to light the oft overlooked aspects of the cultural ethos of African people But there s a conveniently provided glossary of African terms at the end to better facilitate complete understanding of these You were not my first deathbut your going was not solaced by the usualrituals of separationthe dark lugubrious murmursand invitations by threatto the grownups viewof a child s inelegant painso even nowall these years of death laterI search through the indexof each new bookon magichoping to find some new spellingof your name The implications hidden between her verses do not reinforce a kind of self obsessed confessionalism as often found in Sylvia Plath or Anne Sexton s works or the heavy handed inclusion of so many allusions that the poet s urge to communicate is buried under towering ambitions of dismantling poetic conventions Sometimes her words give the impression of mildly cryptic messages casually scribbled at the back of a notebook perhaps while she may have been staring out of her window distractedly Sometimes they are her anguished lament her impassioned protest wrenched out of her by the brutality of the world or the injustice perpetually dished out to those clinging to the lowermost rungs of the societal ladder for dear life Her Power one of the most influential and well known poems from her entire oeuvre simmers with a righteous rage intense enough to blow a hole through the edifice of white supremacist patriarchy aside from being a tribute to the memory of young Clifford Glover a 10 year old African American boy shot dead by a white cop on duty in South Jamaica ueens New York in 73 who was later acuitted by a white majority jury with a single black female judge Today that 37 year old white man with13 years of police forcinghas been set freeby 11 white men who said they were satisfiedjustice had been doneand one black woman who saidThey convinced me meaningthey had dragged her 4 10 black woman s frame over the hot coals of four centuries of white male approvaluntil she let go of the first real power she ever hadand lined her own womb with cementto make a graveyard for our children Lorde remains one of the few poets in American history who had to contend with the tyranny of conforming to the demands of too many labels conferred on persecuted minorities black woman in a white man s world radical feminist lesbian civil rights activist And yet she managed to breach the boundaries of these individual identities by singing in a richly resonant voice whose musicality still holds the power of bridging gaps relaying the stories of the voiceless and the marginalised healing the scars left by turbulent times and smoothening out our countless differences across continents and timelines In my eyes that makes her a hero than a poet
