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, we ring in Day 20 with the Diné poet-painter and painter-poet, Sherwin Bitsui. I once heard Sherwin begin a poetry reading with a rippling invocation of water — each sound, each word that arose from his throat was a bead on the lip of a faucet — oh, I will never forget such a sonic reverence for earthlife.
