Where do we find our models of perseverance and endurance? Travis McClerking‘s poem ‘The Other Shoe’ offers one such model. Travis is a Sophomore at OSU majoring in English. He was introduced to poetry through competitive slams. He continues to develop his craft in open mics held at Kafe Kerouac. His high school teacher Dr. Sidney Jones and the Columbus native, Hanif Abdurraquib, are his biggest influences.
