I had originally planned to program one of my more politically-minded poems that I had already published in one of my collections (Blue.), but over the weekend I was moved by current events to share a pair of poems on my Instagram story. If you follow me there, you've likely already read them. If not, hey, I'm on Instagram, posting photos that I write brief poems about (LeftHandRob).
So this week you get another two-for: "Victory," a piece celebrating the win for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris and "Quiz Show Guru," an elegy for Alex Trebek.
I want to hear what you think of the podcast, whether it's a specific poem or the format, or whatever's on your mind! Leave a review or a comment in your podcast app, or catch me on Twitter @Lefthandrob.
After listening to the podcast (or while listening), visit one of these sites and donate for the cause, because All Black Lives Matter and my fellow white (and cis) people we need to get in the game:
Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center
Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative
The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
