The poems featured in The Monkey Chronicles were written following the end of a brief, but intense relationship. A few years later, they were “workshopped” at Hurston/Wright, a competitive program that focuses on developing African American writers across genres. The poetry workshop was lead by Professor Tyehimba Jess, whose book Olio received the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.

This piece tells the story of two Black gay men on a journey of love, infidelity and (eventually) forgiveness told through the blend of poetry and storytelling.
