National Poetry Month — Day 18

Today I’m going to share a video of a spoken word performance by the poet Zeina Hashem. I’ll post another one of hers tomorrow, too. I know nothing about Hashem her except that she recently won the Rattle chapbook prize. My friend and colleague Christa Forster pointed her out to me, and I’m so grateful she did.

Here is “Correcting My Mother’s Essay.”
