  • A Taste of Raw Suga on Sep. 13, 2011

    Poetess Melanie YeYo Carter is indeed what poetry is all about. I am an avid reader of her works, and I'd recommend the alphabet if they were written by Ms. YeYo! I can't wait to read 'A Taste of Raw Suga', and share with everyone else what I have discovered in this phenomenal woman... Buy this book yall! Rachel *Poetic Ray* Benson
  • The Poetic Genius: Grand Slam Flows on July 13, 2015

    I haven't even sat down to read this book in entirety, but I already know what I'm getting into. This man, my friend and one of my favorite lyrical beings, is indeed the poetic genius he claims to be! The way he so easily marry his words together never ceases to amaze me. His work will last. Take notice. That's it. That's all! ~Poetic Ray: Tha Wurd Glutton :)
