I***** I asked my neighbor and friend in Somerville, Mass., the acclaimed poet Afaa Michael Weaver to write a piece about the the late Maya Angelou. Weaver, a journalist back in the day in his native Baltimore came through right on deadline. Weaver recently won the Kingsley Tufts Award for Poetry, and won a Pushcart Prize for his work in Ibbetson Street, a Somerville-based literary journal. Weaver is a professor of English at Simmons College in Boston.
