One of my goals as Elgin’s Poet Laureate is making poetry accessible for folks. Combining my poems with visual art is the way I am achieving this goal. Poetry doesn’t have to be confined to books tucked in shelves, out of the sight of everyday. Now, they can placed on your bedroom wall, in your kitchen, your work work cubicle or even in your classroom.
Currently, I have done two poems in this series: “Pasadena Summer” and “Ode to Dr. King.” I’ll be releasing more throughout the year. You can order your copy here.
