Hi, my name is Kleo Sincere.

I'm a writer, screen printer, and photographer and the co-director of Providence Poetry Slam. Today I'll be reading my poem, "To Autumn" after John Keats.

I wrote this poem kind of like to contrast the father poem. John Keats really just talks about autumn as this beautiful, like new birth or, like, this transitional time, um, and I kind of do the same thing, but I talk about it in a way that how autumn just takes everything out of me and how every year autumn comes and I just realize I'm not as good as I thought I was.
