Welcome to the next installment of In the Office. This is Polly Magazine’s recurring video series where we invite artists to swing by the office and share a performance.

In this episode, Polly welcomes Cincinnati Poet Laureate, Manuel Iris to our offices at Queen City Clay to read some poems from his new book, The Parting Present | Lo Que Se Irá. It’s a treat to hear the poems recited by Manuel in both English and Spanish as it is written in the book. Thank you for dropping in and sharing your words with us.

Special thanks:

Manuel Iris
