I learned a lot this week, and I’m so grateful for all my educators, intended and not. It’s been remarkable watching NPS change as a sometimes visitor over the years. Baltimore, a slam once run by two (wonderful) white men, is now a thoroughly chocolate team. Boston (proper) sends its first team ever, and wins the whole thing, adapting to awful sound in a gorgeous space. All over, you can hear new kinds of voices emerging.
Every time, poets, its my most profound honor. And if you’re wondering, why yes, I do write poems. A lot of them.
