IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Poem as shared yesterday on @houstonpubmedia as part of their #VoicesAndVerses series for #NationalPoetryMonth. Link in bio to hear me read & talk about it & other things re: poetry.

As shared on @houstonpubmedia for their #VoicesAndVerses series for #NationalPoetryMonth. Link in bio to hear me read the poem which I wrote on #MLKDay as a reflection on him/#KenSaroWiwa, a Nigerian environmental activist who was hanged in 1995 and also, on the power of the voice. I share a little bit too of what I believe accurately captures my poetics.

This is my love language y'all. Like Jay Z said "if you love me baby, this is how you let me know." Shout out to all my friends who by doing this let me know I'm loved. // Thanks to @wanpoetry for sharing this via Litter, their "twitterary magazine."
