|I can feel a seething rage and at the same time see some brooding imagery in this poem ; that mix is very subtle and perfectly helps to raise the rhetoric above the two dimensional confinement. I can only AGREE with the lady who mentioned that it reminds of Maya Angelou, in fact it reminds of a few other African American poets. I liked the rawness and the sonic turbulence it generates, sorry no luck with the speakers couldn't listen to the recital. A POWERFUL HOWITZER poem, great penmanship.

I was on my way to Thank You for the birthday wishes and I noticed this on your bio page!
Really exceptional work! And it was even more powerful hearing you read it! No lie, you made me jump out of my chair and say out loud
"This is why I love her work!"

|A brilliant dissection of the unjustifiable rage of ignorance and cowardice that mars too much of what can and should be beautiful in this world. The voice of poet on the page blended with the acoustic soul of the poet in the ear and heart make this poem a profound palpable experience.|

|No one could have said it better, Nordette!
I agree with the words of Mizzlady..."earth shattering verse."

|Many have been there, many shall follow...it is up to those of us that know to speak loudly and clearly to do so and pray that our words fall on open and receptive ears. Bravo, my friend, earth shattering verse! ~Z~|

Brutal. Raw. Stark realism that needs to be addressed. Extremely painful to read (and hear)--I hope many lives are changed by your words.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :(

|Brava my friend, I'd also like to add that our generational curses, if not broken can go back to 100 generations. The curse of slavery was never one of ours that I am aware of, I know in the 1800's we were in Germany and were/are jews.
In any event, to be safe I break them in all in Jesus' Holy Name. Now, if I could jsu get over the fact that most men are annoying, lol. Really Girl, you are so good, reminds me of Maya Angelou, you are heading to big places my sweet sexy girl.
Love, Janny xoxoxo

|Okay, now that I am breathing again, allow me to add my thoughts with the plethoria of raves you've already received for this piece.
You have a loud voice that speaks in a whisper. There is no need for you to shout because your words do it for you. This is brilliant, absolutely brilliant. It speaks for the world.
