I got two for one...! First Terrance Hayes then, from his To Float Trailer, Etheridge Knight. Poetry so good, I feel all giddy inside. Etheridge Knight died in 1991 - I'll be looking back at his work with reverence, the sound of his voice resounds... And Terrance Hayes, wildly excited to delve into his art and words. Beautiful man.
I barely skimmed the surface with both of these guys... excited to dig deeper. Highly recommend watching this moving art video by Terrance Hayes from his book To Float in the Space Between: A Life and Work in Conversation with the Life and Work of Etheridge Knight.
