Dear Juan Felipe Herrera from Ray

April 15, 2017

Dear Mr. Herrera,

I liked how your opem, "You Can't Put Muhammed Ali in a Poem," is loose and goes outside the rules. My favorite part was the end when you said "here it comes! & (it's gonna sting like a bee)" because I could feel it. The poem reminds me of church where the reverend says something and the congregation answers back.
