Keayva Mitchell is a twenty-two year old currently living in a shady part of Long Beach. Depending on what day you ask, she hails from Los Angeles, Florida, New York summers, or Hogwarts. Some of her favorite poets include Terrence Hayes, Cristin O’Keefe-Aptowicz, and Rachel McKibbens. Keayva has slowly and awkwardly imbedded herself in the Long Beach poetry/music/art scene and has no plans to leave it any time soon. Talk to her about music, astrophysics, reincarnation, or pie and she’ll be your best friend. Every poem she writes is a love poem (but don’t let her in on that secret. She’ll figure it out one day).
