STL is celebrating Poetry Month with virtual pocket poems written by members of our community. Come read and share poems authored by students, community members, staff, and faculty. We hope you enjoy and maybe even get inspired to write your own poetry.
This display reflects poetry written about poetry, meter, rhythm, speech duration, politics, race, American history, humanism, queerness, and nature from a Black perspective.
