BLACK COFFEE POET READS AT MAYDAY POETRY MARATHON 2011

I had the honour of reading at the MAYWORKS Poetry Marathon in Toronto May 1, 2011.  I shared the stage with many great poets, including two of my favorites: Tara Michelle Ziniuk and Zoe Whittal.  

The poem I read, No Les Da Verguenza (Aren’t They Ashamed), was published in OUR TIMES: Canada’s Independent Labour Magazine (May 2009).  The poem is about my mom and my aunt and their experiences as women of colour at their places of work.

Enjoy!
