And again Dr. Margaret Walker’s Birthday….July 7 2014

i
sing  Birthday praises to
Dr.
Mama Diva-Poet Margaret Walker
who
spoke so they might hear in
the
miasmic air of Mississippi who
wrote
so we could get clear on
who
we are from Alabama to New Haven.
i
want to sing of her like she did of
Kissie
Lee, and claim her as my literary
auntie
– grandmomma and i don’t think she
would
mind  but ain’t got the quality time
right
now
except to say
Dr.
Margaret Walker sung me from
wannabe
to done; took us all into
visions
of splendor and love she 

kissed the sky” and
formed
our Universe.  Ashay.
