Nothing pleases Hiram Larew like a surprising poem. He takes giddy enjoyment in words that thrill the page and pop the heart. With wonders of branches, seeds, leaves and roots at hand, he imagines a gratitude for them and their wisdom that’s almost boundless. Beyond that, he’s also committed to bringing the power of poetry to bear on at least two important causes—hunger and America’s tragic history of slavery.
All of these ingredients make up the stew called Larew’s Poetry Life.
