I never cared for poetry, but for some reason Danez Smiths poems have interested me. I read the poem “recklessly” and it took me a few times to read and actually fully understand what he was trying to say, even though i am not fully sure i get what he is saying. Smiths was mentioning […]

Above is the experimental Twitter account I created for this exercise. I chose to do option #2 because when it comes to writing, I’m primarily a poet, so the short story/poetry option seemed right down my alley.

Danez Smith. The author of “ Don’t Call Us Dead” to summarize the book I feel like he had no doubts when making this book. He didn’t care what anyone thought of him, he had no shame in his writing.  After finding out that he was HIV positive I’m pretty sure he thought his life […]

The book “DON’T CALL US DEAD” and the reading from Danez Smith was a very passionate. The title of the book and the picture on the book cover makes the poems in it all make since. Basically the different poems are putting a shining light on racism and how it is for a African American […]

So…I wasn’t expecting that much. I was thoroughly reminded to not judge a book by its cover; even the ones I can’t decipher well. Danez Smith left me mentally and physically speechless. I was told that this book of poems was about an African American, homosexual, and HIV-positive individual who told his story and misfortune […]

Upon reading chapter three of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, I thought it fit to write as one of the unnamed sisters who did not accompany him to the Meryton dance, as the Bennets heard of there being five sisters in total who were to join their meeting.

When I read poems I don’t know why, but me personally I’m someone who doesn’t really connect with poetry in the way people want you to view it. I see some poetry as rhyming lines, and others as words that are put together to have a meaning, I just can’t seem to find the message […]
