Split this Rock Poetry Festival, DC

Spent this past Friday and Saturday in DC at the Split this Rock Poetry Festival. I’m not sure if it was knowingly timed with the cherry blossom season in DC but it was a lovely surprise to find so much pink beauty in the streets (despite the later rain).

I had the good fortune of presenting on a panel with Purvi Shah and April Naoko Heck. We did another excerpted version of the Together We Are New York in Revisioning 9/11 a panel at the festival. I met some lovely poets and reconnected with old friend Kazim Ali.

I learned something wonderful on this day of poetry and community, poets have made listening an art. Thank you festival organizers for such a wonderful experience!
