Wanna hear some poems?

Yeah. Hearing poems is a good thing. GO FORTH THEN! And check out my a newly posted reading I gave last fall in Seattle, Washington. Introduced by Jane Wong and Josh Fomon who said, "This is the kind of writing that grabs my attention and engages me to experience language in new, wonderful ways." Check it out here, as well as on my WHAT TO SEE page.

Reading for Margin Shift in Seattle, WA with Raul Sanchez, Deborah Woodard, Rebecca Zweig, introduced by Jane Wong and Josh Fomon.
