Reading at The Betsy March 7th!

2 Mar

For the past three weeks I’ve been participating in a generative poetry workshop through O, Miami with wonderful poet and human, Mahogany Browne (#blackgirlmagic). The workshop’s focus is “Nature and the Socio-Political Body” and the work being produced by the poets has been outstanding so far.

This Thursday, March 7th our workshop is having a finale reading at The Betsy in Miami Beach. I’ll be reading new work!

Here’s a link to the official info from O, Miami: http://www.omiami.org/events/2019/3/7/mahogany-l-browne-community-reading

Paint by Numbers

19 Aug

1 mighty ocean
3 million grains of sand
11 towels dotting the shoreline
30 feet from the lifeguard stand

2 lifeguards, gabbing
1 expectant mother, resting
2 prayers said for husband at
1 interview that morning

1 brand new cell phone
15 times checked
0 calls or messages
from 1 husband, delayed

1 engine roaring
8 beeps while backing up
2 tires crunching
2 victims, surviving

1 mighty ocean
3 million grains of sand
11 witnesses, yelling
1 ambulance, wailing
all prayers, answered.

My lifeguard stand.

My lifeguard stand.
