April is National Poetry Month, a time when we celebrate poetry and recognize how it has shaped American culture. This year, KUT is participating in National Poetry Month by sharing poems written by students in the Blank Page creative writing programs at Kealing and Fulmore Middle Schools and the Writers' Workshop at Rawson Saunders School. You can read the and listen to the poems here, and you can also listen to the poems read on KUT 90.5 FM throughout the month of April.
After Glenn Ligon’s Untitled artwork at the Blanton Museum of Art
Writing is hard,
and can be misunderstood,
out there for anyone to see.
Reader, it’s up to you to judge.
Maybe I’ll just erase this
and let my mind run wild
off the page.
