Poem Store. Books. Typewriters. Plants. Dirt. Dancing.
I am so incredibly excited to announce this special project! I had the honor of writing tribute poems for all of these inspiring women. These poems serve as the lyrical base for : “Hear Her Song"
A musical celebration of extraordinary women, with honorees including @hillaryclinton, Chief Theresa Kachindamoto, Sister Marilyn Lacey, @michelleobama, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and more! Featuring music composed by an all-female cast of today's leading composers and songwriters, and music direction by Kurt Crowley (@crodees1). Presented in partnership with @vitalvoices and @womenlikeusfoundation, with upcoming performances at Washington DC's @ngadc and San José's @hammertheatrecenter with @sjculture.

Intersectional. Widespread. All inclusive. #ThePoemStore
I’m married to the earth.
Thank you @nataliemoraleslovesfreestuff for requesting that I write a poem based on my own inspiration // A topic that is currently moving through me and most likely through many of us. #ThePoemStore
The way I gaze @yasminemei // Thankful today for all of my talented friends who work so hard and simultaneously nurture such a loving creative community.
The deeper the wound, the better the wisdom. #ThePoemStore
Forever living inside the dream of my mighty love @elenastonaker.
Why wait? Lead with love today and everyday. It’s always worth the deep dive. #happyvalentinesday
To Shed the Youthful Idealism of the Heart // #Poem on a topic I have recently researched personally, relentlessly, and with great care.
Back again for my favorite view while writing poems. Today, tomorrow and Wednesday @individualmedleystore with my dear, hardworking, beautiful friend @yasminemei. Come on by.
This Thursday night @chandrangallery in San Francisco, come dive into the magical artistry of my love @elenastonaker. A figure drawing experience like no other, with offerings from @madremezcal and modeling by @__moreferalthan__ and myself. Link in Elena’s profile for tickets.
