    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.

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
