Diasporican Poets Mixtape on Harriet: Blog of the Poetry Foundation

blog-header

Many thanks to Urayoán Noel for including me in his Diasporican Poets Mixtape on Harriet: Blog of the Poetry Foundation. Noel concludes, “Ultimately, De Jesus’s “The Erasures of NOCT” and Mercado’s Nuyorican Women Writers Anthology are reminders to privileged-professor-me that the craft of poetry is for many of us inseparable from the ongoing and largely invisible labor of sustaining the communities that in turn sustain us, and I thank them for their work. Let those be our poetry’s foundations.” I’m floored to receive such recognition for what is largely self-published material, especially considering the professional and academic accolades of everyone else on this list (and that Don Share rejected this piece for Poetry). ~hehehe~ but im still up in those webpages cuz i’m a ho with the gift of brujeria.
