"Red Clay Blues" and "FB Eye Blues"
Maya Angelou's "My Arkansas"
Angelou's poem can also connect to "Between the World and Me" as it references lynching. The poem, when connected to "Red Clay Blues," would offer a nice comparison. (Please note: The linked poem isn't completely correct, but I couldn't find another one online.)
W.H.Auden's "Funeral Blues"
Langston Hughes' "The Weary Blues"
Kevin Young's "Langston Hughes"
Young's poem works with the blues theme, but it also works well with Langston Hughes' poetry.
Sterling Brown's "Riverbank Blues"
Kim Addonizio's "Blues for Dante Alighieri"
Al Young's "The Blues Don't Change"
John Berryman's "Dream Song #40"
