iPhone : Gave away my copy of Jasmine Guillory's The Wedding Date to an Icelandic lady on the train who freaked out that I had it. Passing along books you're done reading is the best <3

iPhone : Absolutely thrilled about this (starred) review from Publishers Weekly! "Mengiste again brings heart and authenticity to a slice of #Ethiopian history...Mengiste breaks new ground in this evocative, mesmerizing account of the role of women during wartime" publishersweekly.com/978-0-393-0835…

Twitter Web Client : Just found out my hybrid poem from THE FIRE THIS TIME will be anthologized in a new textbook. I'm amazed by the places that little poem goes. Thank you to everyone who has read or shared HOMEGOING AD, and thanks to Jesmyn Ward for asking me to be a part of her breathtaking book. 📚

Twitter Web Client : Accept that while you crave resolution—an ending to the story, and a happy ending at that—the narrative arc you’ve learned doesn’t apply. Stop trying to map the events of your life onto it. You are strong enough to be unsure. Keep moving.

Twitter Web Client : What are some digital and physical poetry archives you have visited or want to visit? Any you have critiques of and or love? Are any of them specialized (maybe not the right term) as in focused on a specific type of poet or poetics or poetry?

Twitter Web Client : A few weeks away but I hope you'll join me at BAM on 8/9 to celebrate the queen of leos, Whitney Houston. I'll be in convo w/ AFemmeHasNoName talking pop culture canon(s) & what it means to think about Nippy's life through a Black queer feminist lens

iPhone : The ONLY reader that matters. My Mother, Ivory Mae, reading and already critiquing. I delivered her a finished copy of the book that she helped me compose. This is a moment of immense joy!

iPhone : I’m still on a high from this weekend! Our #wellreadblackgirl meet-up was amazing. Huge thank you to reparations.club.
