Dear Poets, Can you suggest a poem to help me start moving forward? Dear Poets, Is there a poem that captures the slow melancholy of a rainy day? Dear Poets, Is there a poem that holds all the hope I hold for the future? Dear Poets, I’m queer, I’m queer, I’m so queer and so closeted. Help.

In our beloved online column Poetry Rx, readers write in with a specific emotion or problem, and our resident poets—Sarah Kay, Kaveh Akbar, and Claire Schwartz—take turns prescribing the perfect poem to match. On June 8 at 4 P.M., these star poets will take the stage and fix you with poetry, LIVE at the Bell House. 

Buy your tickets from The Bell House and then submit your own question to [email protected] — there's a good chance your question will be chosen the night of the event! (all submissions will be anonymous)
