First published in 1983 and now considered a classic, She Had Some Horses is a powerful exploration of womanhood's most intimate moments. Joy Harjo's words speak of women's despair, of their imprisonment and ruin at the hands of men and society, but also of their awakenings, power, and love.
Should I dream you afraid so that you are forced to save yourself?
Or should you ride colored horses into the cutting edge of the sky
to know that we're alive
we are alive.
