A Mural by The Sea by Dawad Phillips

[Dancer,  I met this fine poet from Trinidad in my 20s when I was an intern at The Daily Challenge in Bed-Stuy. I gave me a copy of his poem: A Mural by The Sea--the original version. I kept it in my heart for some thirty years.  I looked for him and wondered if he became another Derek Walcott for he is very good. He just published a book of poetry and its worth reading. I bought a copy and found him on Facebook living back in his native Trinidad. He is coming to NY in May to do a signing and I will be there.

A nice story Calypso . I guess you will be letting him know he is heart felt  , cool.
If I was in NYC I would be going to that book signing  myself.  lo.
I did see/ checked  him ,  on a U Tube 6 mins video 'Sando Proper' from the Mural by the sea.

Bed-Stuy eh ?  I used to live on Arlington Place and Jefferson Ave in a couple of those one room rentals , share the kitchen , while going to college in 75. ...... remembering...lol.

HERE ..... I must draw your attention to houston's post  ** interesting debate posted yesterday***
"It is not for Juveniles  and here is hoping you can handle the truth"
Don't forget to share it with your friends and please keep the cursing to the minimum.
Thank you.

I saw the video too, Sando Proper, which is a name for San Fernando. The mythical carnival figure add an interesting touch for I did not visualize it that way.
