    Echoes from the
    M
    I
    C
    Is what I hear
    As I stand over the precipice
    Of Poetry’s Abyss
    Where prolific
    And profound
    Poets abide
    Challenging the minds
    Of those who hear
    Their words
    Take it to the next dimension
    And captivate
    With words
    Hear
    The beat of many drums
    As poets hum
    Over the
    M
    I
    C
    Change your way of thinking
    Come from your comfort zone
    I sit
    As I hear
    Emanations ascending
    From the crevices
    Of Poetry’s belly
    Mystifying my mind
    Sounds
    Of past
    Present
    Future coming together
    Echoes permeating my mental
    As I hear the flow
    Of those
    Who came before
    Langston Hughes
    Gwendolyn Brooks
    Phyllis Wheatley
    George Moses Horton
    James Weldon Johnson
    Nikki Giovanni
    Calvin Forbes
    Paul Lawrence Dunbar
    Countee Cullen
    Margaret Burroughs
    Mari Evans
    Haki Madhubuti
    And
    Others
    Fuel my mind
    With words
    And
    Discource
    That
    Transforms
    Me from
    Mortal
    To immortality
    As I feed of the words
    Of life
    Eternal
    Words
    That shall forever
    Echo from the
    M
    I
    C

    to explore
    to support each
    Open Mic
    Peace
