About the reading:
“I am reading several poems from to cleave that celebrate family, a sustaining force especially during the past few challenging years.
Other poems are new and written during the pandemic, poems that name the challenges and seek solace and praise from a dark, though sometimes peaceful and ever complicated time. Writing these poems gave me the great gift of naming and better understanding the literal and metaphorical possibilities of being human during political chaos and a plague.”
