Poetry Reading: Brian Gilmore - Come See about Me, Marvin

come see about me, marvin is accessible, honest poetry about and for real people. In the collection, brian g. gilmore seeks to invite the reader into a fantastical dialogue between himself and Marvin Gaye-two black men who were born in the nation's capital, but who moved to the Midwest for professional ambitions. In trying to acclimate himself to a new job in a new place-a place that seemed so different from the home he had always known-gilmore often looked to Marvin Gaye as an example for how to be. These poems were derived as a means of coping in a strange land.
