T MO - Spoiled

EHouse Party is a digital performance and publication series out of The Poetry Project with readings, songs, dances, writings and prompts from the past, present, and future. Within each issue, we'll also be sharing a living list of resources, emergency grants, and other recommendations. TMO is a natural storyteller, her rhythm with words propelled her into telling her stories through poetry, she's been slamming out powerful messages laced with alliteration and metaphor since speaking. Her art is a form of both; testimony to her survival as a Black Queer and indigenous human living amongst the dangers of colonialism, And love letters to like sufferers of societies many destructive dysfunctions. Born in Juneau Alaska she is deeply tied to her Tlingit roots, and as a daughter of a Black Panther she was raised between Juneau and San Francisco her whole life and has been an Oakland resident for 8 years.
