34 by Patricia Smith

Patricia Smith is both a master poet and a master performer. Would that all poets read this well! The poem is from Blood Dazzler. (Hat-tip: Sherry Chandler.)

    Big easy. Funny how colored I got. How I absorbed your heat. And how you, without flinching, called me your child.

    A moving reading through and through. I was not familiar with Patricia Smith before. Thank you.
