Poetry

There are no boundaries, no barriers to stop this new lit fire from burning with all the passion and intensity of this gifted poet.

Ayin introduces us to her mother and grandmother through poems that celebrate them while exposing the hardships of their- and her- life. She tells us stories about other women "SPARE CHANGE,"FAT CHANCE", which further reveal her own strong and tender heart. "MOMMA CRIED..." the 1999 Award Winning Poem in memory of Pat Parker is destined to be a classic.

You will meet a proud black poet, philosopher, and lover of women whose sense of humor informs her sense of honor. Some poems, like "COOKING," are best read aloud.

While many of these poems are autobiographical, they have also the quality of universality. The demands Ayin puts upon herself in fulfilling her life's goals will lead you to an examination of your own intentions. Her words are a challenge as well as a gift. "I wanna know/ if you can/ stand by your/ heart/ and not/ abandon/ your guts/ to risk/ the truth/ of your being." Ayin will take you deeper into the bowels of your very self.

"SPARE CHANGE" was adapted to script and filmed by Ayin Adams on Maui and in San Francisco. It screened at the New York International Independent Video & Film Festival winning acclaim.
