Hanging On Our Own Bones. Poems by Judy Grahn

Through these seven narrative poems, Grahn weaves real-life conditions with goddess mythology to construct modern interpretations of lamentation in nine parts.

Song and poem lamentations have a widespread history from all over the globe and carry a wealth of forms and a few requirements―they must read well out loud, they must address current pressing issues, and they must make every attempt to be truthful.

Here Grahn’s steadfast and rhythmic verse directs our eyes to crucial yet often buried tribulations of our times by critiquing white supremacy, honoring battered women, exalting the powers of menstruation, conflating all labor with birth imagery, and revealing lateral hostilities among potential allies―all in order to arouse a meaningful social critique.
