Best Poem of Nikki Giovanni

Knoxville Tennessee

I always like summer
you can eat fresh corn
From daddy's garden
And okra
And greens
And cabbage
And lots of
And buttermilk
And homemade ice-cream
At the church picnic
And listen to
Gospel music
At the church
And go to the mountains with
Your grandmother
And go barefooted
And be warm
All the time
Not only when you go to bed
And sleep

Read the full of Knoxville Tennessee


If i can't do
what i want to do
then my job is to not
do what i don't want
to do
It's not the same thing
but it's the best i can

[Hata Bildir]
