Poetry: A Vaccine for Pain & Suffering

As we all struggle to cope with the realities brought about by our current global pandemic, join Wick Poetry Center Director David Hassler of Kent State University broadcasted for a discussion about the healing power of poetry and how we all can unlock it in our everyday lives.

(Recorded Live on May 19, 2020, at 2 pm AZ time)



Some days you’ll reach for the stars, wishing you had longer arms
You’ll break into a million pieces and call yourself confetti
or look at another and feel for just that moment
everything is right with the world
