The Poet

Cubs the Poet reminds us, with letters inked to paper on his vintage Smith Corona, that poetry matters more than ever.

Writing poems for the people is Cubs the Poet’s calling. His chosen performance space is Royal Street, smack-dab in the middle of the French Quarter, where normally you’d find him writing custom poems, on the spot, for anyone who wants one.  

In an era of social distancing, he’s amplifying his words online instead. To keep the words flowing, Cubs is using Instagram to live stream and post poems for all to hear, see and feel.
