Ronnie R. Brown’s poems always seem more like tiny novels. A complete world is often fashioned in a page or two.
“We live in an age of Sesame Street moments, thus, poetry is perfect for our time,” says Brown. “Few today can find time for a novel, or even the shortest short story, but a poem? I encourage people to take my book with them and read it anywhere, even the bathroom. Poetry is perfect to read anywhere.”
