Nikki Giovanni

I just heard her speak at the college here and she was amazing.
I really don't get into going and hearing speakers. I just went with my American lit class. BUT she was sooo funny and I actually enjoyed when she read her poems. Normally I feel like I don't understand poetry but she talked about why she wrote certain things before she read the poem. It was pretty neat.

Any fans of hers?

Any fans? Me! Me!

Since like 1978, when I thought poetry was Keats and T.S. Elliott and encountered "Nikki Rosa" and "Ego Tripping" in a poetry anthology. (yep, old English Lit. major here. ) Wow. Real words that sounded as if somebody might be saying them.

ever been kidnapped by a poet
if I were a poet I'd kidnap you
