Ruthless, crucial & exacting.
In What Is My Jam on 27 March 2012
People were covering poems by women poets they admire last night at louderARTS. All of these women were well-represented.
The Lamb by Jeanann Verlee.
Night, For Henry Dumas by Aracelis Girmay.
Red Velvet Jacket by Lynda Hull.
Noli Me Tangere by Traci Brimhall (who I’m a little mad at because my poem titled “Noli Me Tangere” – Latin for “touch me not” – the words Christ said to the Marys when they discovered him resurrected – is not nearly as good as Ms. Brimhall’s.)
