In my poetry, I get to sort of catch moments in amber and make the words as perfect as I can. Poetry is sort of the literary tiny house, if you'll forgive me--without, of course, the obligatory composting toilet!! :)(less)

Picture And so I'm past the first flurry of the new poetry book dropping.  I've got the friends and family autographed copies out.  I've got my first few Amazon reviews.  I have what amounts to a launch on Sunday afternoon, November 4th at 3 PM with Carmine Street Metrics, down at our favorite Tiki Bar: Otto's Shrunken Head on 14th St. 

Fact is, I'm a can of ham, and while most folks dread public spea... Read more of this blog post »
