A Day in a Life

As part the 2017 Beltway poetry slam team, we were commissioned by the Washington Area Women's Foundation

 to write a poem in celebration of their young women advisors.

I am very humble and very proud!

It was my distinct honor to write and perform with the Slam Poetry Team representing the DC-Maryland-Virginia area at The National Poetry Slam in Denver, August 2017


This was recorded the second night of Prelim Bouts at The 2015 Women of the World Poetry Slam. I was so afraid to do it, I tried it out earlier that day at the Black Women's Open Mic.  A poet named Shannon Matesky, who was in Bout 10 with me, convinced me it was too important to NOT do it.

SUICIDE IS SERIOUS! Talk to someone. Please. 

I am SO grateful to the humans at Button Poetry & all the good people who lend me constant support. 



This is my second round poem from Final Stage at The 2015 Women of the World Poetry Slam; it was dedicated to my daughter.

NAMING THINGS was a last minute decision, but I'm so happy I did it. On July 22, 2015, it was chosen as poem of the day by Poets & Writers online. 

I hope you like it too.
