“The city’s reaper” by Quinn

The city’s reaper

In cities lights where there are bones buried,
Cold,
Black,
Reapers,
Stealing,
Cold,
Souls,
Gnawing,
At,
Ones,
Cold,
Bones in cities where lights are buried there,

Quinn

Quinn is a Spoken Word performer and a native Washingtonian. She is a sophomore in the star-making Duke Ellington School of the Arts. She performed an original duo poem, entitled “Money, Love, Love, Pride,” with No’El Overby in the 2019 LMC (Literary Media and Communications Department) fall showcase in the Duke Ellington Performance Hall. Quinn also performed In the DC Scores Poetry Slam in 2014, 2013, and 2012, which addressed the theme of “overall want and need for worldwide peace.”

This poem was generated from poet Derrick Weston Brown’s irrepressibly inventive creative writing class at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Triple dap to Mr. Brown for teaching the form and helping to spread the skinny on the Skinny.
