I am in complete awe of both the audience and performers who gather at Da Poetry Lounge here in LA. They remind me even a small amount of words can alter the way we see the world. When I teach, my students think poetry is a dead art form… until, they begin to write. I’ve included a selection of my poetry here because I firmly believe in the power of a few carefully chosen lines.

Frida Seeks Diego - Danielle Orner
