OK, so I tried looking for work from Staten Island’s first poet laureate. However, I wasn’t able to find any books for sale. It’s just as well that I’m posting a video instead. Marguerite is a good friend of mine. She is one of the reasons I am a poet. I first saw her perform as part of a poetry troupe called The Sepoy Rebellion. I saw what she and the other poets were capable of conveying and my perception of the art form changed completely. A year later, I started performing at open mics and the rest is history.
