i would like to contribute my idea on the repetition technique as applied by the poet! lines 1,5,11,12 the poet has repeated some words,this helps us to catch and understand the nature and type of hips,infact it will be hard to forget exactly what "these hips are"
also lines(9-10) suggest that these hips refer to the whole person because it is hard to imagine the hips moving around without taking the rest of the woman along with.

lucille clifton captures the inseparable reality and symbolism of the body.she uses body to assert it as it is and turns it to her advantage.
