So I'm reading my poetry again on Tuesday at the Sphinx Cafe in Oakland. This is a weekly reading series organized by Kayla Sargeson and Jan Beatty. I have to hand it to them, it's tough work putting together one reading, so I can't imagine doing it weekly. I feel honored to be involved and as a bonus I get to read with Arlan Hess, poet and editor of Paper Street Press. Fun!
I haven't decided what I'm reading just yet. I'll prepare later today, but I have a good idea of what I want to read. I might unveil a version of a very new poem I'm working on that is a bit different than my more recent stuff. I'll also read some of my work from last semester and some old favorites. I might even develop a spontaneous speech impediment and pretend I'm Spiderman. I'll feel out the crowd first though. Here are the deets below. Hope you can be there!
