Wild Poppies
A poetry jam across prison walls

Poets and musicians honor poet and political prisoner Marilyn Buck

This CD is a poetry jam in space—created across and despite razor wire, prison bars and censored phone lines. It is a gathering of poets to celebrate the work of sister poet Marilyn Buck, who died in 2010, and had spent more than 20 years in US prisons for her leftist politics and actions.

In the eyes of the government, Marilyn Buck was an enemy of the state, hated for her willingness to risk her life and freedom for a world imaginable only to a revolutionary—or a poet.

CD available from Freedom Archives
