Today’s poetry lab is inspired by work from two poets who are not afraid to mix pop culture with feminist ideals: Sandra Faulkner and Denise Duhamel.
After reading three of their poems (see links below), try to come up with one of your own in the same vein.
I am drawn to She-Ra, Princess of Power, as my starting point, but feel free to use any pop icon of your choice. Remember to weave in a feminist flavor.

Do you know of any other poets who have used pop culture in interesting ways in their work? Then post in the comments.
