Meeting Sonia Sanchez

One minute you're wondering what brought you to this place 
filled with poets and writers, musicians and painters
and the next you're shaking hands with the real deal, 
carrying a dish filled with pineapple and blueberries
while your husband carries her heavy bag of books,
walking with Sonia Sanchez to your car, and
driving to her hotel,
all the while talking like old friends
about crippling snowdust in Georgia and
insignificant mountains of snow in Buffalo
until we arrive at the Inn and with a hug she says
"Thank you, my Sister"
and you wonder why you ever considered staying home tonight.
