The ever-amazing Tara Skurtu has invited poets from around the world to contribute readings for an #InternationalPoetryCircle on Twitter. Please find poems there and new poets, new perspectives.

I am so grateful for poetry, for poets, for being in love with an art that is never afraid to look what scares it dead in the eye.

Here’s “Gauntlet” from We Call Them Beautiful (Diode Editions, 2019).

Sending you love from Queens. And reminding you that you have strengths you don’t know you possess. More than you would believe.
