Format: Paperback
Karma's Footsteps is not a quick nor easy read. It is a uncompromising journey, both author and reader marry in an explosion of joy and rage. Here are three excerpts from three poems.

"Forced Entry"

I shake when I see him.

Only my homegirls seem to notice.

His boys' mantra is lying bitch.

They mutter it with machete-sharp eyes,

occasionally one rouses himself to it

lying bitch

"I Was There Once"

My great-grandfather killed a man

and I love him for it.

"Sometimes"

syllables slide beside me

I dream they kiss and sigh

I get lonely

even with words

sometimes

I do not yet own this beautiful piece of work, but I had the honor of listening to the poet read some of her poems from the book as well as some poems that she is working on. She is an incredibly talented and powerful woman.
