There are a couple of days left to dial up the Healing Verse Poetry Line to hear me read my poem "Hold It Down." The Healing Verse Poetry Line was launched by Trapeta B. Mayson while she was serving as Philadelphia Poet Laureate. The project has since moved to the Philadelphia Contemporary, with support from Co-Director of Curatorial Programs and Curator of Spoken Word (and former Philadelphia Poet Laureate) Yolanda Wisher. A huge thanks goes to Trapeta and Yolanda for featuring my poem! Be sure to save the number in your contacts because a new poem drops every Monday.
