Last week Maryah attended her third open mic – we went to see a good friend of ours, Sean Battle feature in our home town… I like bringing Maryah not as a way to force poetry on her, but just for her to gain an added appreciation for words and music. Sean did his thing, proud of the fact that he graduated and has received his MFA, many of us “poets” can’t say that… looking forward to see what moves he makes in the future. I performed a piece that I just wrote for a friend, though I said the concept was irregular heartbeats, it was actually imperfect hearts… felt it was a solid piece…. Getting back in the swing of things.
