I've decided to open up my blog a bit. It won't simply contain poetry of my own, but also works of art I manage to find in my occasional searching that I think is worthy of being shared. I recently discovered a few channels on YouTube which are related to one another by their connection to the Bowery Poetry Club in New York City. When the weather gets a little bit nicer, I'll be going there to enjoy some of these word wizards and anyone from my personal life who wants to come along is welcome. Anyone else who is outside my personal life that would also like to go, I'd be more than happy to join you at a table.
Though these aren't my own works, if you enjoy the video or any other part of the blog, I'd ask you to share it with your friends and family on Facebook, Google+, or by e-mail. I'm trying to nurture my small garden of followers!
This is a video from the Bowery I discovered while watching hours of spoken word poetry. She is a beautiful poet, and though this short poem is indicative of her and her style, it's not necessarily her best. I'm sure I'll be sharing more of her work in the near future, but for now, I present Sarah Kay!
