    It’s cool how you can create so many different poems and sentences with just a few words. Brillant post!

    This poem comes out of heart without make-up, stark naked as a beautiful new born baby; it is reallya poem

    I have read some of your poems and become your fan. I am a poet of Bangladesh, generally compose poems in Bangla, have some short poems in English version. I wish you read some of my poems and threw your comments. Is it possible for you. You are such a poet who has keen eyes and who knows how to play with words and how to offer a new message. I salute you.

    All my comments get spammed into the deep yonder since everyone loves her.
    A true inner and outer beauty, a depth, a wisdom beyond this world and a humour
    of true wit.
    Thankyou
    Maya Angel...

    I love to hear the poetry of this great poet. She along with several other African American writers are the inspirations to my writing. I too write poetry and it's my passion since the young age of 8. I have always said and dreamed of being a best selling author of original poetry of all sorts. I feel this is my gift from God and it should be shared with the world. Thanks Maya Angelou you really have helped pave the way for many like me. GOD BLESS.

    God has sent an Angel to us
    to give her affection and love
    with her delightful poem
    Her name is
    The High Respected Maya Angelou
    May God bless her a long
    and joyful life.
    With kindest regards

    The black American man makes the black American woman maybe not superfluous but just a little kind of decoration. Not really important to turning around the wheels of the state. Well the white American woman has never been able to feel that way. No white American man at any time in our history in the United States has been able to feel that he didn't need that white woman right against him, shoulder to shoulder.

    Swap the words 'black' and 'white' and you have a quote from that 'phenomenal' racist, Maya Angelou.

    I agree with Maya Angelou that the current inscription on the MLK memorial makes King sound like an arrogant twit. However, I think the solution is EASY. Fill in the first two words (I WAS) so that the fix reads: A DRUM MAJOR FOR JUSTICE, PEACE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. It seems to me that filling in those two words would be an inexpensive and proper fix. Further, even if someone who carefully looked at the fix could barely make out the old “I WAS” it would be a point of conversation and history and a further tribute to a brilliant hero. Happy MLK weekend! - Jerry Gorski

The Detached

We die,
Welcoming Bluebeards to our darkening closets,
Stranglers to our outstretched necks,
Stranglers, who neither care nor
care to know that
DEATH IS INTERNAL.

We pray,
Savoring sweet the teethed lies,

[Hata Bildir]
