Wanda Coleman

One day, you will see me at a podium humming a tune before I share my poem. I won’t sound as beautiful as  Wanda Coleman.  Listen to her command of language, voice, and tone.  The second poem she reads scatters a diminuendo across the lines. Let Wanda Coleman mentor us in how to move from poem to poem with ferocity in this 10 minute set.

There are delusional nuts selling her 1994 album High Priestess of Word for less than a $1.00 on Amazon.   Purchase it!
