This poem was inspired by Evie Shockley's "a thousand words". I call it A Thousand Words Free. Alexis Pauline Gumbs introduced it to me and others as a part of the Finding Poems day long retreat series. I am sharing it for this the last day of my When We Free: By Every Means Media Fundraiser. Tax Deductible donations can be made here: http://igg.me/at/whenwefreemedia/x/4590404
This is the debut of the poem. Hope you enjoy my ruminations on "Free". Those that donate before midnight I'll send a pdf version of the poem.
