This is Suffolk Downs




It's now closed to racing. A poem I wrote, Suffolk Downs, from observing people at that setting appears in Poiesis 5, a journal run by Propaganda Press , who published my book, These Poems are Not Pink Clouds.

What I'm doing at Massachusetts Poetry Fesitval



The 2012 Massachusetts Poetry Festival is happening April 20th - April 22rd in the beautiful and historic town of Salem!

Tonight I'll be getting erotic  with dancers and artists:

5:30 - 6:45pm on Friday, April 20 in Old Town Hall, Upstairs, 32 Derby Square, Salem, MA 01970

Spellbinding Kinetic Poetry, an interdisciplinary poetry-art-dance program, features thirteen Bay State and Gulf Coast poets reading erotic poems accompanied by the creation of a large-scale 4' x 25' visual-poetry broadside by a dancer and visual artist responding to poems in performance. This tapestry of spoken word activated dance and visual poetry will leave a passionate relic for audience appreciation before it is taken outside and burned for witchcraft.

Speakers
ALYSHIA LIEN
AMANDA AUCHTER
ANDI WERBLIN
JOSEPH NARDONI
KATE HANSON FOSTER
KEN JONES
LORI ZIMMERMANN
MICHAEL HOERMAN
PATRICK PIERCE
TIMOTHY GAGER


On Saturday I'll take over a trolley which circles the event area at 1:30 for a reading....hmm, a mic, a trolley and me might be dangerous.

Poem from my "reply series" published on Extract(s)

About a week ago, I posted about my "reply series".

Today, Jenn Monroe's new poetry blog, Extract(s) was kind enough to publish, "reply to someone who said, u owe me a poem, boy."

If you feel someone owes you a poem, look around, there are poems everywhere. I think Warren Beatty owed Natalie Wood a poem. What do you think?
