Although she is the first, she said she does not expect to be the last. 

“The first poet ever on the cover of Vogue Magazine. I am eternally grateful and do not expect to be the last-for what is poetry if not beauty,” the post read.

Her poem Chorus of the Captains also aired during the 2021 Super Bowl, making her the first poet to perform at the event.
