Lyrical Bomb Dropper Kevin Coval

SHARE Lyrical Bomb Dropper Kevin Coval

Kevin Coval is a world-renowned poet and co-founder of the teen poetry competition, Louder Than a Bomb. He's been known to drop a few bombs of his own on our air from time to time, with lyrical-but-blunt takes on race, family and the urban condition. In this poem, Coval considers the summer romance, as it can only happen in Chicago.

One warning, this piece contains some sexual imagery that may not be appropriate for everybody.

Coval will perform selections from his book Everyday People at an official book release event tonight at 7:30 at Victory Gardens Theatre on N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago.
