One of the awesome aspects of writing is the reader's interpretation adds a unique element to the text. If you're ever curious how I approach what i've written, take a listen here to recordings of some of my favorite pieces as well as those I've performed live.
My poem, "a pocket survival guide for black boys" was published in an anthology called Permeable to the Year by The Subtle Forces. Poets were invited to read their pieces on the radio. You can hear my piece starting at 18:25.
