The Glacier and the Moraine Valley Library sponsored the first MV Poetry Contest & Virtual Coffeehouse on Thursday, April 15. In this entry, Taiye Ojo says he intended to display “a vibrant imagery and a fearless engagement with the cold accumulation of loss. It references the wells of memory, desire and regret. Like a reflection, the poet persona in this poem doesn’t shy away from the grating emotional pain.”
