Dante Micheaux

Poet Dante Micheaux

With PEN’s Poetry Relay, a series of readings and conversations, we hope to trace the topography of influence that connects contemporary poets to their peers and predecessors. The relay features a reading by each poet and a conversation that covers the poet’s inspiration and influences, followed by a hand-off to a peer.

In this week’s relay, Ishion Hutchinson passes the baton to Dante Micheaux, author of Amorous Shepherd. Listen to Micheaux read his poem “Good Kisser”.
