Joaquin Zihuatanejo

Last year i saw this poet. He did four poems. Yesterday I finally found some footage. A teacher who learns from his students. A man who learned sign language so he could speak to one of the kids in his class through poetry. Wow! He closed that night with a poem called "Final Exam for My Father" I've only heard the words of that one once but, the feeling he left is still ringing. Some people don't get poetry. For others its the only thing they have. I'd say most people like a well told story.
