“I want to make space for people who feel like they don’t fit the mold—and by that I mean all of us, at some point. The good truth is that we get to own all of ourselves.”
These are the words of local poet R.B. Simon, who joins Wednesday host Ali Muldrow for today’s final installment of the National Poetry Month series.
They have an honest conversation about writing at the intersections of identity, growing up in rural Wisconsin, and R.B.’s journey to sobriety, all along the way celebrating the forthcoming release of R.B.’s debut poetry collection, The Good Truth, out July 2.
