Vox Populi: A Public Sphere for Politics and Poetry

Video: Andrea Gibson — Say Yes

.

Andrea Gibson (born August 13, 1975) is an American poet and activist from Calais, Maine, who has lived in Boulder, Colorado since 1999. Gibson’s poetry focuses on gender norms, politics, social reform and the struggles LGBTQ people face in today’s society.

This is for the possibility that guides us
and for the possibilities still waiting to sing
and spread their wings inside us,
‘cause tonight Saturn is on his knees
proposing with all of his ten thousand rings
that whatever song we’ve been singing we sing even more.
The world needs us right now more than it ever has before.
