Join us at Bowery Poetry for a reading with literature luminary, David Dephy.
Poetry, which is the answer to all of the mysteries of our unique world. Poetry, a reason for the existence of language, is a breath which brings out every genuine word in that very moment when you are standing across from yourself, language and poetry itself and have no fear, because you are free. I think that a human being gets strength from the truth and transfers that strength to others and fills them with comfort and allows them to carry on and hold on during everyday struggle. This truth for me is poetry and it has no boundaries. It is timeless and ageless.
