Happy Poetry Month!

I'd like to share this video about Chinese poet Huang Xiang with you. Huang Xiang was a City of Asylum poet in Pittsburgh. I think he put it well when he said, "I am crushed diamond/A sun resides in every tiny piece."

The current City of Asylum-Pittsburgh poet is Khet Mar. It's a tremendous program, which you can support here.

There's also Ithaca City of Asylum, and the International Cities of Refuge Network.
