So I have to fangirl out a bit. I MET LI-YOUNG LEE TONIGHT and he is every bit as magical as I suspected. He gave the most intense reading and I had to follow him. I could barely even. This man’s poems were the green light to me that I could also be a poet. The intensity of his lyric expression told me that I didn’t have to perform a certain script for pain or survival. And after I shared my work, he told me it was beautiful. I hope I get to see him again. I gave him a copy of my new book, because it was LI-YOUNG LEE.
