A poem from Youth Radio

"Pergola" by Flickr user Robert McNicholas/used under CC license/ cropped and resized


This week we're featuring poems from participants of Remix Your Life, an arts program run by Youth Radio

These poems address the relationship between the natural world and city life. Jaylyn Burns grew up in Oakland, and in this piece she imagines a conflict between young people and police officers, from the perspective of one of the city's parks.
