IF the Poet (Ian French) channels the wisdom of Spirit, the rage of the wounded and the yearning that resides in every human heart. His poems are a “shout-out to the sacredness of our days, a three-chord party jam, and a tribute to the triumph of love over fear.” IF is a member of the 2013 National Champion Toronto Slam Poetry Team and the 2014 Canadian Individual Slam Champion. By way of introduction, he sent BWS this beautiful video! Enjoy!
