Hey Friends! Welcome to episode 12 of something borrowed featuring fantastic poet and recent UK representative at the World Poetry Slam via Zoom screen share (!) Tyrone Lewis. We talk about how it is to have your poetry judged in different languages and what references may or may not make sense.
I share my thoughts on So Solid Crew's 21 seconds to celebrate being one step closer to BFFs with Lisa Maffia and borrow Vanessa Kisuule's new poem Hollow. Tyrone shares his brilliant new poem, 2 Black 2 Furious and finishes on a Star Wars poem, which is also a black poem. I also talk about toilet seats for a bit too long.
You can get Tyrone's book from his website here or if it's sold out from Burning Eye's website Here
You can see Vanessa reading her poem Here
