|I don't know why black people are called "nigger", why can't they be just simply called "black"?
No matter, this write is just AWESOME. It captvates me from beginning to end.

|Wow, Mitzi. You sure did start this one 'nice 'n easy' but ended it much differently. A truly powerful emotional write.|
|Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
|I hear you. I hear you loud and clear here. I do so hope that before I pass on that the word "nigga" will become as distasteful when black Americans say it as it does when we whites utter the word. I can understand why it is used, I think, but the word is such an explosive one, and rightly so, that it needs the same stigma put on it no matter who uses is. As I said, I do understand, it is somewhat the same as when we whites call ourselves "rednecks" as opposed to other people calling us the the same thing. A lot get lost in the translation. Be good. I know you are.|

|Out of all the talk regarding revolutions during the 1960s and beyond, I don't think anyone realized that the most meaningful revolutions, whether televised or not, would not take place in the streets but in the minds and souls of poets like Mitzi Jackson. It's kind'a like the Staple Singers said: "I'll take you there," and you sho nuff did. And then again it was like Tina said: "We gonna start this one out nice, and slow, and easy. But then we gonna end it real rough." And you sho nuff did. Peace.|

|Mitzi your poetry is always exceptional! This one reminds me of how llttle we truly know about humanities nature.. I always look deep into the duality of nature. We can desire someone for the incredible way they make us feel and some of the fantastic things they do, only to find they have another side and they do the bad things just as good as they do the good things.;-)Great poetry ms poet...

|May be one should think about changing the age group here.
When I had a Jap garden, it was just peaceful. This is a great poem, full of poetic images.
Here we can't use the Nig' word..
