  • "The power of words has been violated and misappropriated" in the last 4 years - so incisive. I love how she describes transforming the buzz on Twitter into poetry for the people, capturing the zeitgeist so beautifully. Brava, Ms. Gorman, I look forward to hearing more from you, as we agree with you that "words matter".

  • To quote a popular Dr. Suess character, "I can not say such blibber blubber. My mouth is not made of rubber." That inauguration "poem" was a word salad, a bunch of identity politics clichés and catch phrases all mish-mashed up in a steaming bowl of alphabet soup....Hey, Anderson Cooper! Do you think they'll serve up the same ol' turkey lunch every day, in prison?

How this woman found an inner voice and projected it is something I can't comprehend. She continues on this path with the zeal she has, she'll have a Nobel for literature before she's out of her 20s.

I wish you everything good that you can become, and especially the incredible Amanda Gorman, whom I absolutley adore. She captured the moment and the feeling, the heartbeat of a battered and bruised nation so perfectly, so eloquently , and wieghted her words with more dignity than a certain man could ever dream of. God speed, and God Bless America.
