E.D. Campbell Poems

Best Poem of E.D. Campbell

Sister Say
Have your baby
pushing limbs of fire out at every corner,
watch one birth yielding another

Bring her, wash her, feed her
like the daughters we were
and the universe will not be held
by the spinning of new steps,
either direction,
this is not all the business
of life stealing

Pink Skies
Tomorrow I will dance before
my grandmother's house
with my arms flailing in a
haste, a moan and many stomps
I will stir dry Mississippi dust over
red ant hills beneath
our giantess of an oak

Like a rain dance I will do
the steps of the pink sky
Passionate movements full of longing
