Stevie Edwards – “Sadness Workshop”

Performing at her book release in Minneapolis.

“This is important: you have to take the sadness for a walk twice a day but nothing too early. The sadness likes cracked sidewalks and large bodies of water. The sadness likes coffee shops and subway stops that are empty or crowded. The sadness likes extremes.”

Don’t miss this phenomenal poem from Stevie Edwards, featuring at her book release party at Icehouse in Minneapolis.
