National Poetry Month 2017: Monica Noelle, Idealism

Poetry isn't some thing that happened long ago, gets taught in grade school, and exists now only to class up the occasional car commercial. It's living, thriving, happening all around you. Maybe even inside of you.

Monica Noelle is a poet currently living in Northeastern Pennsylvania. She is the founder and driving force behind Be Kind Scranton. I met her through the Be Daring Open Mic, held the last Wednesday of every month at Adezzo, a cozy coffee lounge cleverly tucked directly in the middle of a city block at the intersection of two alleys. She doesn't read there every month, but it's always wonderful to hear her when she does. Here is a poem she posted today, posted here with her permission.
