K'in Poetry Spotlight! Beaten Drum Woman by Stephanie Deal

Stephanie Deal grew up in Los Angeles during the 1980s. "My father was full blooded Native-American: Tohono O'odham, and I have never laid eyes upon him. My mother is a gentle woman who never deserved to be treated as the world saw fit. I learned to read for the first time when I was ten years old; I took to it like a fish to water. Books are one of my greatest joys, followed only by my husband and my children. I have made many mistakes in my life, and for it I have suffered. But I have survived and persevered, and am better for that suffering. I write about a number of topics, but closest to my heart is the topic of surviving domestic violence." Stephanie is currently attending college to become a teacher. This is her first publication.

K'in Poetry Spotlight! Listen by Georgia Dennison

from Listen

For years, 
    oral lore was decanted,
        the sediment disturbed, distributed,
by hasty men. 
 
    Until, women, who were uninvited, 
            came anyway, respirate, 

aerating the narrative....

K'in Poetry Spotlight! Two Poems by henry 7. reneau, jr.

Must Read K'in Poetry! 

henry 7. reneau, jr. writes words in fire to awaken the world ablaze: free verse that breaks a rule every day, illuminated by his affinity for disobedience, a phoenix-flux of red & gold immolation that blazes from his heart, like a chambered bullet exploded through change is gonna come to implement the fire next time. He is the author of the poetry collection, freedomland blues (Transcendent Zero Press) and the e-chapbook, physiography of the fittest (Kind of a Hurricane Press), now available from their respective publishers. Additionally, he has self-published a chapbook entitled 13hirteen Levels of Resistance, and is currently working on a book of connected short stories. His work was nominated for the Pushcart Prize by LAROLA.
