Praise for 'Imagination Overload'
JP, ATL. poet = "I just finished reading every single piece of poetry in your book and it was a refreshing and scintillating experience. I am very impressed with your depth of thought, creative use of imagery, clarity of perspective, and courage to stay true to your convictions. Keep up the great work! One love!"
Cheo Thurman, poetry workshop instructor = "She uses such imagery. I love the strong beginnings drawing you into each poem. She reminds me of Lucille Clifton or Nikki Giovanni.
Brotha Malcolm, ATL Poet = Well,today I've completed my 2nd reading of "Imagination Overload." Here are the poems that stood out for me personally.
"Candy Shop"- I liked the line:"My tongue will savor your body as a candy coated dessert."
"Us Right Now"- I like the idea of a woman saying "Don't pleasure me.Don't perform for me--instead indulge yourself.
Do to me what makes you smile."
"You Remember"- I like: "..explored one another through and over and under each other."
Sincerely,man to woman,poet to poet,Brotha Malcolm.
Brotha Mose Hardin, Jr., ATL Poet/4 time published author - "You should be very proud of yourself. Your book is wonderful and I thank GOD you're in my life!"
Praise for 'Clenched Teeth Smiling' and Poetry Performances
Pablo, ATL Poet:
Just finished reading your book #2...another gem!... luster intensified by your creative progression into the realm of the extra-ordinary/boldly unapologetic/zen-like...I was especially touched by "Conversation with Dad", "Waiting To Die", "Something Like a Saint....", "Number Killers", and "Arrested Voice".
The synergy of your collab with Adonis is palpable ergo the anthology soars to a level perhaps unattainable as a solo venture...but then again...who knows! :-)....
Keep the pen flowin' sis. You are an inspiration to us all!
