Imagining Ourselves Fatherhood Exhibit

When my wife found out the International Museum Of Women asked me to submit a poem, she didn’t miss a beat: “You go girl!” In actuality, they are preparing an exhibit featuring the art of young men as an analogue to their recent and highly successful “Imagining Ourselves” exhibit featuring young women.

I just learned that the poem I wrote specifically for the Fatherhood part of this series has been accepted as part of the exhibit. Audio of me reading the poem as well as commentary and conversations about the work are available here. (Note: the website misrepresents my line breaks–all lines with only 1-3 words on them should be a continuation of the previous line.)
