April is National Poetry Month, and Public Radio 90 observes the occasion by presenting readings by poets from Northern Michigan University and surrounding communities.
Today's poetry comes from Alex Vartan Gubbins, who lives in West Ishpeming and has previously lived in Marquette. His poetry was previously featured on Public Radio 90's National Poetry Month productions. He's written and recorded poems in four languages: Arabic, Armenian, Anishinaabemowin, and English. He's also recorded each poem in the native language with its translation into English.
