Barnes & Noble: 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: Poems for Children, comes a new volume of powerful, inspirational poetry. Goddess Under the Bridge, DuEwa Frazier’s fourth poetry collection, is a meditation on the beautiful, the ugly, the passion, the struggle and reflection of the inner goddess. The poems pay homage to Alice Coltrane, Suzan Lori Parks, Lucille Clifton and other notable artists. Frazier’s words shake and shout, rant and conjure moving and familiar images from the past, present and future of one’s waking life.
“DuEwa Frazier offers more than glossy words. The strength and beauty of all women-resonates like a Coltrane solo in her meditations. The precious metal of her poetry has arrived.”—Truth Thomas, poet and author of Speak Water
