I’m honored to be featuring next Tuesday on the Blood-Jet Writing Hour with host, Rachelle Cruz. Rachelle has done an incredible job of curating and has highlighted some of my most favorite poets. Again, I return to feeling blessed and being so grateful for the chance to share my work with a broad audience. I’ve been in this game for almost ten years and I know for a fact that if I had told my 2001 self all this would happen, he’d laugh his ass off and shake his head in disbelief. Nuff talk, here are the details and I hope you can spread the word.
Episode #60: Oscar Bermeo on Tuesday, April 19th @ 11 am PST / 2 pm EST
Join Rachelle Cruz as she talks with Oscar Bermeo, author of To the Break of Dawn on Tuesday, April 19th at 11 am PST / 2 pm EST. Tune in through Blog Talk Radio.
The poets presented here believe in the value of community.Â All the poems here happen in the wild open air with interactions as varied as Radiohead in Venezuela, a trip on the Bx1 in the Bronx, communion with the dead, and conversations with God.Â These poems bristle against the unexpected, invite conversation and (in my idealized world) spread out to create connections with their poetry.
Many thanks again to Life Long Press editor-in-chief Valyntina Grenier for this chance to the work of some very exciting poets.
