I resonated with Ms. Francis’s poems and stories which reminded me of so many people you see growing up in our black communities. Love and hate, shame and pride, and joy and sadness, often share the same bed in our community. Yet, survival is the goal no matter the circumstances. Ms. Francis reminds us to just breath. I will proudly add No Recipe Intended on my bookshelf.
