Great Regulars: Patricia Smith is the author of Blood Dazzler (2008),

which considered the human and environmental cost of Hurricane Katrina and was nominated for a National Book Award. She's also been a featured poet on HBO's Def Poetry Jam. In "Hip-Hop Ghazal," Smith takes what was originally an Arabic verse form and makes it her own.
