Phillipe Martin is the founder of In Parentheses and a poet from New York City with a Master’s Degree in Poetry from The New School. He writes as someone in the tradition of the urban troubadour or the flaneur–wandering, taking notes. He believes that poetry of our generation has taking on a much more digital definition. His series taking shots alone was self published in 2012-2015. (@uptownvoice)
