Kyle “Guante” Tran Myhre’s poetry almost always invokes social justice and being present and honest with oneself. When I invited him to take part in the project, he offered this piece, which recorded at a live performance in front of an audience, rather than recorded in the studio with the other artists. I had some hesitation, but upon hearing the piece and reading the blog post he wrote about it, I knew I wanted this to be part of the project. – Cole
