Happy Memorial Day! Thanks for joining me for Poetry Monday. Today’s poem is “After a Reading at a Black College” by Toi Derricotte from her book titled “Tender.” Enjoy!

  1. Despite calling myself a poet, I had never heard of Toi Derricotte. Is that weird? Whether it is or isn’t, thanks for introducing me to her work! Can’t wait ’til Monday =)

    • It’s not weird at all. The poetry world is quite large…I actually had not heard of her work until a few months ago. I’m so glad I could introduce you to a new poet! She also has a memoir called “The Black Notebooks,” which I’m in the middle of reading right now. Fascinating observations!
