Note: the poems in this video deal with sexual violence.
I am happy that “For My Son, A Kind of Prayer” is in Veils, Halos & Shackles: International Poetry on the Oppression and Empowerment of Women. It’s an important anthology that I truly hope gets the attention it deserves.This reading, which took place shortly after the book’s publication at the Long Island Writers House was truly powerful. It was a privilege to be the first reader among such fine poets. I hope you’ll take a look at the video and, if you haven’t already, consider buying a copy of Veils, Halos & Shackles for yourself or someone else.
