Episode 30: Revolutionary in the regular with poet Romus Simpson
Welcome to Planet Noun where it’s all about the People, Places, Things and Ideas that teach us, prompt us to make a difference and do more with what life presents. Meet today’s guest, Romus Simpson. He always has a funny tale of everyday life to share, and has been a vivid storyteller since I’ve known him. I don’t even remember the year we first crossed paths, but it was through my cousins at their parent’s house—many years before they both passed on. Years later, we ended up in a long conversation after my aunt’s memorial and became pals. This prolific poet reminded me that I asked him to come on the show for National Poetry Month earlier this year. A short time later, the world CHANGED with COVID-19 and worldwide stay at home orders and lockdowns. We still don’t know what it’ll look like when things get back to “normal.” But finally Romus and I got to chat virtually — right in time to bid adieu to this year’s commemoration of the poetic form. Romus Simpson…right here on Planet Noun.
