Welcome back to Anonymous Grocer, a 30-day audio adventure in backwards poetry. Each day: a new poem, a new collection of words in unfamiliar and spiraling patterns, a new audio message to ease you into your day.
Today, Day 2, we continue the series with Lauren K. Alleyne, whose poems bear witness to many troublesome and achingly vulnerable bodily experiences on Earth, while also leaving room for the illumination of the hopeful, resilient, transcendent human spirit — a poetic swiveling that is both seamless and wants you to look, name, rub your finger over the seams.
