Up Jump the Boogie!

Way to go Park University and the Ethnic Voices Poetry Series! Intimate venue, excellent opportunity to stand and visit, get to know, John Murillo.  This voice of the city (LA, DC, NY, Chicago) brought us stories in form, from cuplet to sestina to sonnet.  As this messenger read from his first published book of poetry all ears and eyes were standing on The Corner, listening to hip hop, knowing in all of us...when we were twelve, we taught ourselves to fly.
