Poems by Maya Angelou
drunk with the nectar of
weaves its way between
to find itself at the flophouse
to sleep and be seen
Will I be less
dead because I wrote this
poem or you more because
you read it
long years hence."
Simple, deep, inspiring and sophisticated, this small book of poems written by Maya Angelou makes for a worthwhile afternoon read.
While I only found a handful of poems I could relate to, I still appreciate the literary genius that is Maya Angelou. Poems is a good starting point for Angelou's work, and being such an icon, it really is a must read.
