May 8, 2020: Poetry Sharing with "The Flying Busman"

This week we’ll be joined by special guest Mickey “The Flying Busman” Mahan. Mickey is a retired bus driver whose talents and interests include poetry, jumping on a pogo stick, painting, making s’mores, playing guitar, and much more!

He will be sharing his poetic and musical talents with us, and we invite you to do the same! If you have any poems that you’d like to share, whether they are written by you or someone else, we’d love to hear them. Help us create a space of sharing poetry and art during this isolating time!

Facilitated by Seth Quam, UIC social work and public health graduate student and WLRC graduate assistant.
