    There aren’t many raw, funny, and lively poems out there, but this Poem “Stalk Me” is one the small few. This Poet brings the intense, dramatic feeling, with a humorous twist that her audience enjoys. In this poem, the poet is talking about her success and how there is a down fall to it. However she takes her fears in some ways and turns it to sarcasm. She tells her stalker to come out and reveal him or her and do the unthinkable in her case. It showcases her braveness and confidence, not caring what other people think about her. Maggie Estep leads her “stalker” in this in a seductive and hypnotizing way that makes this poem electrifying
