Have you read New Testament? No?!? Well today’s Poet Spotlight was going to feature Jericho Brown, I was going to explain how he was a student of Claudia Rankine, and she recommended I read him. How I am grateful she did, and I was going to praise him. Then this morning after I wrote the praise and lead you to the poems “Elegy” and “Heart Condition” this was in my newsfeed from poetry foundation. Read this instead, The Contract so much better than anything I could have said and you will fall in love with Jericho because of his love for poetry that will make you jealous that you have never said any of this to poetry, when it has done so much for you. You can also read the aforementioned poems, because you will need more.
Or watch him here.
