Dish literary editor Matthew Sitman writes:
Last Sunday we featured my long interview with the poet and priest Spencer Reece, “A Memorable Form of Love,” about his time teaching poetry to the girls of Our Little Roses orphanage in Honduras. One of the projects that emerged from his experiences there is a book manuscript, Las Chavas: Twelve Poems from the Murder Capital of the World, that includes a spiritual autobiography written by Spencer, interspersed with poems from the girls and his memories of them. As our interview came to a close, I asked Spencer if I could record him reading the postscript from the book, which is addressed to those he lived with and taught. You can listen to it above.
