The poems in this second edition of Thirty Dollars and a Bowl of Soup are celebrations and lamentations about womanhood, motherhood, teaching, identity, oppression and justice, loss and love, and they attempt to grapple with challenges that run the gamut from Flint to fibroids with wit, humor, sensitivity, grace, and productive defiance. New poems such as “For the Record”, a tribute to Billie Holliday, have joined the original work.
