This Saturday evening, join me and four other remarkable writers and activists.
Richard Cambridge’s Poet’s Theater will present four writers whose work appears in the new issue of About Place, “Geographies of Justice.” About Place is the twice yearly journal of The Black Earth Institute, a progressive think-tank. REGISTER AND GET YOUR TICKET HERE to what will be a fabulous evening, including an open-ended discussion with all who attend. You must purchase a ticket, but you can buy one for any amount you wish to contribute, including $0.00. Seriously
I will be reading from the polyvocal docu-poetry sequence “Mundus et Infans.” Driven by grief rooted in personal losses, it is also political, born of outrage at the atrocities inflicted on the world’s children. Its epigraph from William Blake is meant to set a tone of unsentimental regard for the challenges facing the young: The Angel that presided o’er my birth/ Said, “Little creature, form’d of Joy and Mirth,/“Go love without the help of any Thing on Earth.”
The issue itself will be published May 1st.
