Urban Indian Poetry. These three words make me think of contemporary, edgy, touching stories dealing with multiple cultural and personal realities, and mostly, poetry that convey tough truths in their own subtle ways. Much like a shot of espresso- concentrated, distilled and a direct hit to our grey matter.  I started my blog, poetry espresso to convey some of my experiences with people in the different roles I have taken on. Enjoy! Whether or not you like coffee.
