I have also realized that this ed Poets Series will have to continue, in one form or another, above and beyond National Poetry Month. Stay tuned for more details.

Meredith explains:

Alex McWatt at Three Kings did an amazing job at putting all the elements together. I decided to get this gallery after losing most of my family members, but mainly after my mother, who is a drug addict, disappeared from my life 5 years ago.”
