Rereading Sonia Sanchez's Homegirls and Handgrenades. One amazing poem goes a little something like this:

A Poem for Jesse

your face like
summer lightening
gets caught in my voice
and i draw you up from
deep rivers
taste your face of a
thousand names
see you smile
a new season
hear your voice
a wild sea pausing in the wind.

--Sonia Sanchez

You see what I mean? Boom!

I can't wait to buy David Shapiro's Selected. It's dope. I've always enjoyed his work.
