I purchased some really great books and downloads for my kindle but have not found the time to read any of them. So far I have only been focused on one or two of the titles and that was only due to the reading group I am a member of. I cannot say that I have had any additional time to really sit down and enjoy a piece of literature in quite some time. There really needs to be more time in a day. Speaking of more time, thanks to Neil deGrasse Tyson’s page on Face Book it seems we will all get extra time. Read what he has to say about our moon and the addition of a “leap second.”.

I am a poet with an interest in topics that include themes of unity, sensitivity and equality, in addition to the study of women writers of the postmodern era and the experimental genre of contemporary poetry. As a starting point for the focus of my poetry, I am working through interpreting personal observations of the homeless situation in Detroit. In my community and surrounding areas, I have witnessed and experienced discriminatory practices that resulted in senseless divisions in the work place, schools, communities and neighborhoods with increasing numbers of homeless people. Exposure to these real life situations made me question the amount of attention that local governments give to matters of equality, sensitivity and homelessness. I am concerned that there aren’t enough voices in local leadership such as block clubs and community organizations, that encourage passive citizens to become engaged. In the tradition of political activism, I am working through ways to deliver these messages. At this point of development in my poetic practice, I use compression, the tension of the line, and the sounds of language to stress social acceptance and cultural sensitivities.
