The Hive: December 1, 2019


Co-hosts Farnaz Fatemi and Dion O’Reilly discuss the virtuosic poet Patricia Smith. Let Smith’s poetry alter your mind (as poetry should!) with her intense subject matter and her comforting beats. Hear poems and discussion from her books Incendiary Art and Blood Dazzler, and explore poetry forms like the Golden Shovel, invented by Terrance Hayes after a Gwendolyn Brooks poem, and used by Smith in Incendiary Art.
