Tomorrow I'm on the Lineup With...

Mayda del Valle!

Yes, one of my favorite poets will be sharing the stage/mic with me tomorrow... or maybe I'll be sharing the stage with her. Whatever the case, we're in a line-up together. I'm hype. The one poem I'm surely doing is Wilted Women. Any suggestions on the second?

Did I ever mention that she was the reason I decided to go natural/cut my hair off? I saw the poem I have below and was like "Wow. She chopped her hair off. That's bold." Then, it crossed my mind to do the same, I messaged her on Myspace, she got back to me months later like "Do it. It's liberating"... and here I am now. Anywho, check her out.

Here's a clip or two of her:

...and another performance of hers is on the post To All The Boys I've Loved Before. That's actually the name of her poem.

Uber Excited,


  1. wow....she is really amazin!
    have a great time sharin the stage mama!

  2. WOW! I'm excited for you! That's a once in a lifetime chance to perform with someone you consider a mentor/idol. Congrats!!
