At first, I didn't realize how closely connected all of these poems were, but once I put it all together I realized I had a really interesting manuscript, which might become my first book if someone publishes it. The manuscript is titled He Do the Gay Man in Different Voices and I've recently begun to send it out.
My poetry podcast for today comes from that manuscript. Today I'm reading a poem called "The Anatomy of a Hate Crime." This poem is a bit different from my other work. Since you can't see the text, I will say that the poem is actually a prose poem and is written in blocks of text. The poem explores the idea of hate crimes and how they have become almost routine and also how we as a community respond to them.
