God can stay asleep / these women in my life are magic enuff

An electrifying collection of poems that tells a universal tale of survival and revolution through the lens of Black femininity. Tara Stringfellow embraces complexity, grappling with the sometimes painful, sometimes wonderful way two conflicting things can be true at the same time. How it’s possible to have a strong voice and also feel silenced. To be loyal to things and people that betray us. To burn as hot with rage as we do with love.

Each poem asks how we can heal and sustain relationships with people, systems, and ourselves. How to reach for the kind of real love that allows for the truth of anger, disappointment, and grief. Unapologetic, unafraid, and glorious in its nuance, this collection argues that when it comes to living in our full humanity, we have – and we are – magic enough.

These are lush poems full of radical love and strength. Tara is a guiding light of tenderness and power. Her words are a balm. Magic Enuff is a gorgeous collection exploring the bond and beauty of Black womanhood – Warsan Shire, author of Bless the Daughter Raised by a Voice in Her Head
