After a smattering of absurdity, I've been choosing poems that are, in a word, earnest. This week's selection is no different. From Regret and Opportunity, this episode is the poem "And I Will Then Be Ashes." Though earnest, it takes a turn for what I hope is inspirational, which is something that I have a feeling a lot of us can use. So, stick with me on this brief journey, let me set the table so that I can reveal my true thoughts as we wind our way through to the end.
I'd love 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 Black Lives Matter
Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center
Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative
Transgender Law Center
The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
