Upcoming readings

Hello, muchachos! If you are in either Denver or New York, I'M COMING TO YOUR TOWN!

This Saturday, September 19, I'm reading as part of the Denver Small Press Fest, along with Sommer Browning, Brian Foley, Eric Baus, Aby Kapaung and others. The reading is at 5 pm at Metroboom (1231 35th St. Dever 80205).

And next Sunday, September 27, I'm reading in Brooklyn along with Sommer Browning, Chris Tonelli and others, again at 5 pm at Over the Eight in Brooklyn (594 Union Ave). (Apparently Happy Hour in NY is from 6 to 8:30? Amazing; happy hour always ends at 6 here.) Please come and say hi!

Speaking of Chris Tonelli, we had a long conversation over email this spring and summer about poetry and all things related to poetry, such as buildings and clouds; you can read it at the Conversant.

Also, I wrote an essay for the Smart Set about the word "pretty."

  1. Wow. You're utterly gorgeous, dear.
    I won't say any mo.

    I giveth unto thee,
    my just and worthy liege,
    a wild, odor-free, exaggerated ride;
    yet, intoxicatingly illustrious:

    Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
    than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
    Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
    You’re creative, yes?
    Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

    Whether you obtain moralityB4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2?
    An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
    avant-guarde-humility =
    withe extraordinarily explosion of maelstrom mellowdramatic??
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love –
    jump into faith…
    and you’ll VitSee with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.
    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

    PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
    -our Lord Jesus to Saint Gertrude

    …think about it, girl…
    1-outta-1 perishes in 88ish years;
    1-outta-1 shall be Divinely Judged;
    1-outta-1 goes in either direction then,
    depending how WE sinfull mortals
    have lived, is where WE go for eternity:
    Seventh-Heaven -or- the Abyss o'Misery.
    Yes, dear, life’s extremely tough now;
    yet, life’s extremely short now:
    then, WE have the length and breadth of eternity
    to consider where our decisions have placed U.S.
    And Satan’s working overtime to steal your indestructible soul.
    Don’t let that sly, smooth, sinfull Liar.
    I choose Heaven.
