Rectiation Event at The Draw with Poetry Unlocked, February 11

Here I am reciting Magdalena Zurawski's wonderful poem, For the Republic at Poetry Unlocked at The Draw in Appleton, WI February 11 2019.  I wasn't nervous and I knowI FELT the poem, but somehow, later in the evening, when I recited one of Terrance Hayes' American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin, I messed up the line about the arms of the last trill trees of Bluff Estates.  I think I did the poem justice though, still..or maybe it does itself justice no matter what. Anyway it was a really fun and moving evening, with a number of people reciting poems that are important to them.  

February 2019 -Wish me luck at Poetry Unlocked reciting two poems from memory (in honor - and in resistance of- of my Mom's lost memory). I'm doing two protest poems: For the Republic by Magdalena Zarawski and one of Terrance Hayes' American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin
