  1. We have much in common, Vernon. Langston and Maya I, too, hold in high esteem. I hold them in high esteem not because they are exceptional Black Artists, but because they are brilliant, loving, and kind. May Langston rest in peace. May Maya enjoy her 85th Birthday, and may you have a blessed birthday this Month, too. I wish you much success with your next book of poetry. I looked for your works in the book International Who’s Who in Poetry I recently purchased as you are a wonderful poet. I ordered the book. Best Poets of 2012 maybe I’ll see you there:)
