Maggie and Harmony kick off another Bite-Sized Bits decade by exploring “Martha” by Audre Lorde. Lorde, a famous feminist and American writer, is often not talked about enough when it comes to her poetry. “Martha,” published in 1970, was her coming out piece. It explores death and rebirth, loss, coming out, and uncertainty as central themes. You can read it for yourself here: http://themirrorpoetry.blogspot.com/2018/08/martha-audre-lorde.html
