“Karma’s Footsteps is as fierce with fight songs as it is with love songs. Searing with truths from the modern day world she is unafraid of the twelve foot waves that such honesties always manifest. A poet who “refuses to tiptoe” she enters and exits the page sometimes with short concise imagery, sometimes in the arms of delicate memoir. Her words pull the forgotten among us back into the lightning of our eyes.” -Nikky Finney, author of Head Off & Split, 2011 National Book Award    

“Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie has fallen from the clouds with a book full of lyrical revelations for the women who are never seen or heard. Like Nikke Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez and Ntozake Shange, Tallie can bring you a flower, or can shoot a bullet depending on her environment. She provides us with the tools to scream out, send wake-up calls, and cast spells (for or on) our souls.” -Willie Perdomo, author of Where a Nickel Costs a Dime
