From the award nominated poet and author of Shedding Light From My Journeys, Stardust Tracks on a Road, Ten Marbles and a Bag to Put Them In and others, comes a new volume of powerful, inspirational poetry. Goddess Under the Bridge DuEwa's fourth poetry collection is a meditation on the beautiful, the ugly, the passion, the struggle and reflection of the inner goddess looking out and reflecting the world. The poems pay homage to Alice Coltrane, Suzan Lori Parks, Lucille Clifton, Pearl Cleage and other notable artists and thinkers. Frazier's words shake and shout, rant and conjure moving and familiar images from the past, present and future of one's waking life. The setting of these poems may be Harlem, St. Louis, Brooklyn, Chicago, a river, a bridge, a road or the seat of a soul.
"DuEwa Frazier offers more than glossy words. The strength and beauty of all women--resonates like a Coltrane solo in her meditations."
-Truth Thomas, Poet and Author of Speak Water
In Goddess Under the Bridge, DuEwa Frazier unapologetically embraces the inherent strength that lies within the feminine.
- Derrick Harriell, Poet and Author of Ropes and Cotton
