I start with my own joke about equating math and poetry. Then I use a quote from American psychologist Abraham Maslow, about poetry. April is national poetry month. Then I talk about enriched environments with poetics and catharsis.
In this week's RITE OF PASSAGE EXPERIENCES or ROPE, I talk about poetry. I read two personal poems that involve emotional rage. One is an internal rage. The other is about the externally purging of emotions.
