#Best Week Ever
We had a nice time getting to know my daughter's boyfriend a little better yesterday. We had him over for a barbecue.
Queer Book Club
OH This week because I realized I can't cram all of them in this month I've got three recommendations and they're all Poets this week. They have books but I'm gonna recommend specific Poems and link them. :3 But they're all very emotional and I've tried to attach trigger warning to them but I may have missed some.
First my absolute favorite poet of all times is Buddy Wakefield. He is a spoken word poet that has such a unique voice. His word play is spectacular but his ability to put in those absolutely breath taking moments of clarity amongst the cacophony of life all inside his poems is just jaw dropping to me. He touches subject from his own experience with his sexuality, to mental health, to spirituality. I highly recommend "A Choir of Honest Killers" (Link 1) and "We Were Emergencies" (Link 2), and "Waste" [TW: Sexual Assault] (Link 3)for starters.
Another of my favorite Poets is Andrea Gibson. They've really become one of the break out modern poets of the spoken word scene. Their imagery is unbeatable in my humble opinion. They also touch a lot on their own identity and sexuality, and almost all of their stuff is equal parts fierce and tender. Be prepared to cry and feel deeply. For them some of my favorite poems of theirs is "The Day You Died Because You Wanted To"[Trigger Warning: Suicide and Loss] (Link 4) which I can't even put into words. As some one who works in the field of grief and loss, and I can't even begin to put how powerful this poem is in to words, "Angels of the Get Through" (link 5) is one of my personal favorites its poem dedicated to those people in their case a best friend who sticks with you in the hardest moments, and "Living Proof" (Link 6) [ TW:Self Harm/Suicidal Ideation] once again indescribable.
The last one is Frank O'Hara. A Modernist who wrote about America and his own sexuality in the 50's and 60's. His writings have always been one of a kind and so deeply influential. Not quite a beat poet, not quiet imagist, I don't even know how to describe his stuff. I highly recommend "Katy" (link 7) and "My Heart" (link 8) and "Animals" (Link 9) When I think of quintessential American images his poems is what I think about. When he wrote "Someday I'll Love Frank O'Hara" was the first line I've felt, I'm not a spiritual person but if you asked me if I every felt something like a religious experience that line would be the first one I ever had.
I also want to give a shout out to Ethan Smith's Poem "A Letter to the Girl I used to Be" for one of single most powerful and transformative poems I've ever heard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lkn06Y8prDU [Trigger Warning: Gender Dysphoria, Suicidal Ideation] I tried so hard to get my college to invite him to our college but our GSA could never get him.
I'm thankful that we had a terrific time at the zoo on Tuesday ... beautiful weather and very active animals!
