Hello everyone! I am so sorry for the lengthy wait for this post. I was in Puerto Rico then I returned to school and moved into a new place. So, I’ve been busy. But don’t think that I haven’t been thinking about you all and what I wanted to write next. This month’s Poet of the Month is Lang Leav. She is my favorite poet.

Intro to segment:
I first heard of Robert M. Drake on Instagram because many celebrities follow him and repost his poems on their own profiles. He is a published poet, living in Miami, Florida, of a new book called “Beautiful Chaos.” I’ve tried to find his poetry other places online (other than Instagram) and have been unsuccessful. If you’d like to follow him, his instagram name is @rmdrk. (You don’t need to have an instagram account to view his profile)
Robert M. Drake’s style:
Robert is an elusive writer of both personal and general human observations. He writes Continue reading Poet of the Month: Robert M. Drake
