    I love the work of this poet, had a chance to hear her read live on stage on her Texas book tour...phenomenal! Her work is old school You can tell she was influenced by poets like Maya Angelou & Nikki Giovanni with a little Gil Scott Heron. Also found her work in a collaborative book Check the Rhyme: An Anthology of Female Poets & Emcees, the book was nominated years ago in the same category as Maya Angelou at the BET Awards; of course Dr. Angelou won.

Denomination

A world estranged
Ingrained in uncertainty
As sanctified effigies
Cry tears of blood
When holy men
Rape Nuns to purge
Their desires
