“Poetry holds time in a beat that at once passes, but is captured forever in its quill. It heralds the important and celebrates the unseen,” said Catherine Malcolm Brickman, chairwoman of the Malibu Cultural Arts Commission. “Genuine art is a form of truth. Poetry articulates that simple heart truth that eludes everyday language. It is an art form that isn’t elitist, and Mr. Ybarra, our first Poet Laureate, will help our community to experience poetry’s ‘everyday-ness’ and ‘every-person-ness.’”
