MAYA ANGELOU "Men" When I was young, I used to Watch behind the curtains As men walked up and down the street. Wino men, old men. Young men sharp as mustard. See them. Men are always Going somewhere. They knew I was there. Fifteen Years old and starving for them. Under my window, they would pauses, Their shoulders high like the Breasts of a young girl, Jacket tails slapping over Those behinds, Men. One day they hold you in the Palms of their hands, gentle, as if you Were the last raw egg in the world. Then They tighten up. Just a little. The First squeeze is nice. A quick hug. Soft into your defenselessness. A little More. The hurt begins. Wrench out a Smile that slides around the fear. When the Air disappears, Your mind pops, exploding fiercely, briefly, Like the head of a kitchen match. Shattered. It is your juice That runs down their legs. Staining their shoes. When the earth rights itself again, And taste tries to return to the tongue, Your body has slammed shut. Forever. No keys exist. Then the window draws full upon Your mind. There, just beyond The sway of curtains, men walk. Knowing something. Going someplace. But this time, I will simply Stand and watch. Maybe.

The Simpsons slammed Maya Angelou hard once, when The Simpsons went to a book fair Kent: Alright, does anyone have a question for our panel that's not about how much money they make? [Audience's hands go down] Lenny: [at microphone] Uh yeah, I'm a techno-thriller junkie, and I'd like to know, is the B-2 bomber more detectible when it rains? Kent: Oh, what do you think, Tom Clancy? Clancy: Well, the B-2-- Lenny: No, no, no, I was asking Maya Angelou! Angelou: The ebony fighter awakens, dabbled with the dewy beads of morn. Moe: Maya Angelou is black? Angelou: It is a mach-5 child, forever bound to suckle from the shriveled breast of congress. Lenny: Oh, Maya, you're a national treasure!
