“Don’t think/about Thanksgiving, but hope/for a decent Halloween,” writes Steven Cramer in his poem “Bad,” featured in this month’s collection of p2g, along with his poem, “Bipolar.” Steven is the author of five collections of poetry and was the director of Lesley University’s MFA program when I was there. His poems are poignant, funny, and honest. He sees the humor in the absurd.
We also have a professor from Eckerd College, Gloria Muñoz, writing about the complexities of how we wear our heritage. She is representing p2g’s sister region, currently hosting p2g poems at four venues, soon to be six. Sarah Lain , assistant editor, is lovingly placing poems everywhere she sees a poemy home.
To complete this collection we have a unique voice in “Film Director” by Kimberly Simms, and then there’s “Haircut,” from Lesley University MFA candidate, Mollie Chandler. Mollie is currently working for the corporate world by day, and passionately writing poetry by night.
Grab a handful of poems next time you’re at one of our p2g venues. Should you run out of candy Halloween night, you could give a poem treat.
