“Writing poetry is like having a conversation with our higher self,” says American poet Jericho Brown. They hail from different generations but the lives of these four writers are shaped and permeated with poetry. Listen closely as they share the intimate conversations they have with their higher self.

“Menulis puisi seperti melakukan percakapan dengan diri kita yang lebih ‘tinggi’,” kata penyair Amerika, Jericho Brown. Mereka berasal dari generasi yang berbeda tetapi kehidupan keempat penulis ini dibentuk dan ditempa dengan puisi. Dengarkan dengan seksama saat mereka berbagi percakapan intim yang mereka miliki dengan diri mereka yang lebih ‘tinggi’.
