    Nika's poems speak with such an abundance of humble self-confidence that they are absolutely overwhelming. When I read her poems I feel as if I am in the same room with some well-known noted authority on some important subject, except that it's at a casual cocktail party where everyone is on a first name basis, utterly at ease and without a thought of wanting to impress anyone. Her diction is perfectly conversational, without the least hint of self-consciousness. It flows off the page, it gathers your interest and attention without the last demand or coercion. No false manners. No guarded politics. These poems exude a rare sense of charisma, of being interested in you, drawing you in with guileless charm. A thoroughly enchanting voice.

Afro Hair 101

Growing my coils has been a journey
chopping off chemically treated strands
in my mother's bathroom mirror
an ill use for craft scissors
merely an inch hair left
looking at pictures online
I saw myself in the images
of fierce female African warriors
we shared the same haircut
