A week or so ago I had the opportunity to be on Poets in Pajamas, a Reading Series, hosted by Sundress Publications, that connects readers and writers around the world. What happened? About 20 minutes of poetry from #TheBluesCryForARevolution and 10 minutes of questions and answers. Between all of that, the comments were pouring in:
“Love the ending.”
