Luis ‘L-Majesty’ Pabon is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Poet and Spoken Word Artist born and raised in the Bronx, NY. He is the author of eight books of poetry, most recently Trouble Man (Kindle Publishing Direct, 2021) Luis currently resides in Albany, NY, and has just completed his next full collection of poems entitled Luxurious Wreckage (forthcoming, 2023). Luis enjoys traveling, laughing, and finding new ways to cope with inflation. You can usually find him either on Facebook (lamenting the evils of the world) or crying in one of the aisles at Price Chopper.

Luis read his poem “When the Boyfriend of Your Lover Calls You in the Middle of the Night” at Nitty Gritty Slam #89 at The Low Beat in Albany, NY on March 3, 2015.

In this first of a special two-part interview, we talk about this poem, relationships, healing the wounds that are left behind, and coming out the other side.
