For the serious poetry lover, Borders sent this wonderful thing today. Open Door Poetry.
It makes the internet all worthwhile.
I've spent way too much time in the non-fiction stacks.
Poets performing their own work, Music and visual accompaniment. Give yourself time to absorb it all. Say yes to Dulce LeLeche, cry with Human Death Dance, remember what a teacher did for you with What Teachers Make. Windblown Children blowing you away, Patricia Smith telling you what mattered about Dizzy, this is a front row seat.
Taylor Mali is a genius.
Listen carefully, poetry lives. What a treat, thank you Borders.
