Biography of Mikaylah Simone

Mikaylah Simone poet

The precision and elegance of a poet’s words can make readers pause to appreciate their own perceptions or examine their feelings. This can surely be said of one new poet…Mikaylah Simone. Mikaylah is an emerging African-American poet whose simple, yet visceral, style brings poetry back to its basics as a social art through her affirmation of cultural identity and personal redemption. Leaving her Texas beginnings, New York soon became the ideal stage for her “one-woman show” of life. From the “Lone Star” (unfashionably dressed in black skin) , to the “Big Apple” where black is “vogue” on the Harlem runway. Mikaylah’s poetry communicates consciousness and passion out of her strong desire to transform thoughts and experiences into art.

Recipe For A Slave

Preheat antebellum plantation
Under 100 degrees of southern heat
Add one part capitalist society
Pour in slave ships
With tens of millions of African people
Finely dice countless families
And separate daily
Carefully strip away
Language, culture and religion
