    this is not a poem…in fact most of alice waker's 'poems' are not poems. these do not speak to me, nor do they touch me, intrigue me or mean something. to all of you who look at these poems and believe they have some deep and revolutionary meaning, think again. all this stuff it just sounds like political nagging and complaint, and frankly its tiring me. just because she has some sort of an important name does not make her every product a piece of art. wake up people! think for yourselves for a moment, if i told you that her poems were made by a five year old you would not take it seriously right? so why act as if these are master pieces? ? they're not! i like poems, i love it when they are smart, rhyme, cute, or sad, painful, depressing or even modern poems i don't mind, but this… this is ridiculous.

    I am very touched by, and enjoyed your poem Blessed are the poor in spirit. It managed to say something I have been trying to communicate for some time now.

    The poem 'Expect Nothing' gives me the sensation of unscrewing a lightbulb in total darkness. The expectation is boundless.

Desire

My desire
is always the same; wherever Life
deposits me:
I want to stick my toe
& soon my whole body
into the water.
I want to shake out a fat broom
& sweep dried leaves
bruised blossoms
