This month’s feature, the Dynamic Duo, is poetry's favorite crime fighting pair! Heralded for their high energy live performances involving complex dual voice work, comedy, and emotionally raw poetry, Panama Soweto and Ken Arkind have brought their show to both coasts and all points in between. Their work covers subjects from politics and video games, depression and comic books, racism and relationships, proving that poetry can be a powerful vehicle for personal expression.
