As of my 2018 poetry book purchases, I bought these two little beauties ❤
–Depression and Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim
–2 Fish by Jhene Aiko Efuru Chilombo
I am so excited to read these books! I remember watching Sabrina Benaim preform “Explain Depression to my Mother” and I was immediately hooked. Not only could I relate, her performance was so powerful and inspiring.
Check it out!
And of course, I love Jhene Aiko! Her music is so pure, soothing, and fierce all at once. I saw her in concert in 2015 and I am still touched by intimate her show was. Her ability to touch the heart of her listeners, whether young or old, is noteworthy.
Here is a video of “While We’re Young” by Jhene Aiko:
