Fwd: Monday's poet is Afaa Michael Weaver

The Poetry Show, February 27, 2016

7:30 - 9:00 AM EST on EPIC Radio.

This week's featured poet: Afaa Michael Weaver

Here is our player link.


Afaa Michael Weaver was born in 1951 in Baltimore, MD, the oldest of five children of working class parents. His mother was a beautician and his father was steelworker. He graduated from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, an elite high school, at age 16, and then enrolled in the University of Maryland. After two years he dropped out of college, married, and for the next fifteen years worked in series of manufacturing jobs. However, during those years he continued to write poetry and launched a small publishing company (7th Son Press) and a literary journal (Blind Alley) with his overtime earnings and a grant from the city of Baltimore. In 1985, he published his first book of poetry, Water Song (University Press of Virginia, 1985). In that same year he also won a $20,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and a fellowship
to the graduate creative writing program at Brown University. The fellowship was contingent on finishing his undergraduate degree, which he did at Excelsior College. Subsequent books include My Father's Geography (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1992), Timber and Prayer (University of Pittsburgh Press, 1995), Ten Lights of God (Bucknell University Press, 2000), Multitudes (Saraband Books, 2000), and the three books that form the Plum Flower Dance trilogy: Plum Flower Dance: Poems 1985-2005 (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2007), The Government of Nature (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2013) which won the prestigious Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, and City of Eternal Spring (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2014). His two most recent publications are the chapbook A Hard Summation (Central Square Press, 2014), a cycle of thirteen poems about African-American history from the slavery to the current day, and the full length collection, Spirit Boxing (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2017), which centers on the years he spent working in factories. In 2002, he won a Fulbright scholarship, went to Taiwan, and taught at National Taiwan University and Taipei National University of the Arts. He currently teaches at Simmons College in Boston, Massachusetts.

This week's featured poem is "A Nation of Hands," from his just published collection, Spirit Boxing (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2017). This poem begins as a descriptive list of actions undertaken by hands but takes a surprising turn toward the end. 

A NATION OF HANDS

Kneading dough on rough wooden tables, forward
and backward, in laundry tubs with scrubbing boards,
sweat sifting down temples where hair lays sweetened
in curls, on the chests of arrested hearts, pushing down,
praying the heart headed to the dust will stop and know
the troubling grief it is about to summon, children's
hands moving across blackboards to erase a day's study
and please the teachers, on sacred books above gestures
signifying which way to turn, parades of hopeful souls
headed to righteousness in churches, temples, mosques,
over the terrified mouths of men on decks of ships
overwhelmed, about to founder full of fresh haddock,
massaging the stiffened backs of our grandfathers, lifting
memories of our origins out of sheaths of muscle tissue,
holding a frightened calf down to hush it to sleep,
sucking back tears to think of tables it will feed, deciding
in one last minute to let it go and eat vegetables instead,
that mercy, or the mercy of walking in the full breeze
of spring in Appalachia, your dress lifting under you,
singing the surprise of love when it is full and bright,
the applause held in suspended air when the dance
surprises, the music lifts to some impossible phrase,
those mercies and the deep mercy of knowing hands
are the openers of gates and clasped they are the keys.

Fwd: Monday's poet is Eva Saulitis

The Poetry Show on EPIC Radio
Monday, 7:30 AM, 20 February 2017



Eva Saulitis was born in 1963 to Latvian immigrants and was raised in rural upstate New York. She briefly attended Northwestern University on a music scholarship to study oboe, but found the conservatory atmosphere to be "stifling, competitive, and brutal." Although she continued to enjoy playing oboe the rest of her life, she transferred first to the State University of New York-Fredonia and later to Syracuse University, earning a degree in wildlife biology from the latter university. When she took a job in Alaska, she fell in love with Prince William Sound, working first in a fishery, and later volunteering with orca researcher Craig Matkin, whom she subsequently married. With her husband, she studied a pod of orcas known as the Chugach transient orcas for over 25 years, a population that is facing extinction following the Exxon Valdez oil spill. She wrote about these matters in two nonfiction books: Leaving Resurrection: Chronicles of a Whale Scientist (Boreal Books, 2008) and Into Great Silence: A Memoir of Discovery and Loss among the Vanishing Orcas (Beacon Press, 2013). She earned two masters degree from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks: the first in zoology (1993) and the second a  Masters in Fine Arts in creative nonfiction and poetry (1999). Her two full length poetry collections were Many Ways to Say It (Red Hen Press, 2012) and Prayer in Wind (Boreal Books, 2015). The latter is a collection of 60 poems, all but two entitled "Prayer" followed by a number. She was an associate professor in the low-residency MFA program of the Year University of Alaska-Anchorage, mentoring students until shortly before her death by breast cancer on January 16, 2016. She received many honors, including the Alaska Governor's Award for the Arts and Humanities and Homer Arts Council Lifetime Achievement Award. Her final book of essays, Becoming Earth (Red Hen Press, 2016) was published posthumously.  

This week's featured poem is "Naturalist's Prayer," the first poem in her first poetry collection, Many Ways to Say It (Red Hen Press, 2012). 

NATURALIST'S PRAYER

          after Ilya Kaminsky

If I speak for the earth I must sing. 

I must sing the same song every morning, sing

like the unidentified bird with its repetitive

cry, that nameless bird in the morning

who bleats & bleats like a lamb of 

the wild. If I speak I must crawl

along its convergences:

          slough & 
          forest & forest & floodplain & floodplain &
                    meadow & meadow & delta     collecting data:

Transcribing the falling, 

the hardening. The wet, the cautious, 

the curious quick licks of an animal

at the furthest

edge of its range, pressing its pads

deep into groundcover, marking

trees with its foreign scent, 

its foreign name. If sing it's because

the earth persists & this is just my brief

wandering between

trees alive & dead & fallen, on all

fours through the under-story. To breathe

in a windstorm is singing. To sing is to praise

Earth's madness, placing

carefully as a predator my tread

upon each, the darkest, 

the coldest. It's like dying each time, 

not crazy to pray: Let this day, earth, 

let it be given. 

Injured and blistered amen.

Fwd: Monday's poet is Jake Adam York




Although Jake Adam York was born in West Palm Beach, Florida on August 10th, 1972, his family soon returned to Alabama where generations of his family had lived and where York grew up. He earned a BA from Auburn University in Alabama, and both a MA and a Ph.D. from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. He was an associate professor at the University of Colorado-Denver. Before his unexpected death from a stroke on December 16, 2012 at age forty, he had published three award-winning collections of poetry: Murder Ballads (Elixir Press, 2005), chosen for the Elixir Prize in Poetry by Jane Sutterfield, A Murmuration of Starlings (Southern Illinois University Press, 2008), which won the Crab Orchard Series in Poetry Open Competition Award and the Colorado Book Award, and Persons Unknown (Southern Illinois University Press, 2010). A fourth collection Abide (Southern Illinois University Press, 2014) was published posthumously and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. 

Much of Jake Adam York's poetry concerns racial violence and murder, especially during the Civil Rights struggles in the South. After a lot of hesitation and self-reflection, York, a white Southerner, started a long-term project to elegize the martyrs of the Civil Rights movement. In an interview with Gregory Donovan published in the journal Blackbird, York said "I've been struggling with this aesthetic problem of how to write about history that's terrible without offending the history, offending the victims of the history. On the one hand, you want to bear witness to the terror of it with the terror of your own. But on the other hand, you have on opportunity in memory to offer a kind of consolatory vision." 

This week's featured poem is "Bunk Richardson," from Murder Ballads (Elixir Press, 2005). The central event took place in York's home town of Gadsden, Alabama, although York did not learned about it until the publication of James Allen's book, Without Sanctuary. 

BUNK RICHARDSON

                    Lynching photograph February 11, 1906: Gadsden, Alabama

The rope grips the iron
where the iron bites into its hold. 
A noose of rust, dried blood. 

The dew has frozen in its twines, 
thicker near the river, 
from which it's climbed

weaker and weaker, all night long.
