I had the chance to share some poetry in honor of Earth Day and National Poetry month with several other BIPOC writers for the Denver Public Library. The event featured Suzi Q Smith, Franklin Cruz, Sheree Brown, and myself.
I read some speculative poems from Solar Maximum, a work in progress, a longer piece in series titled “The Incident” that is forthcoming with my new book from Nightboat, and a short poem on grief and landscape that I published with the Poetry Foundation as a little mini podcast episode. That poem is called “After Noise.”
This may be one of my most favorite readings I’ve participated in. Truly a pleasure, and so satisfying to hear everyone. Check out the recording on YouTube.
