On The Pulse of A New Morning

"the thugged out/pimped out/ images release them/save those roles/for the young souls who believe them/i want the undefineable/indescribable and more..."--Tamia

No disrespect to Rita Dove or Maya Angelou or my beloved Nikki Giovanni, but it's nice to see some new Black female poets on the national scene getting some shine. Elizabeth Alexander gets the chance to show her flow on Inauguration day next month, and I'm excited to see what she's got. She looks like she's got the potential for some BIC...I hope she slips some in on January 20th.
