We closed out National Poetry Month with a Poetry Industrial Complex showcase at Obliq Art Gallery in the Arizona Center. I was fortunate to be reading with Jack Evans, Jeff Falk (accompanied by percussionist Greg Roberts), and Bill Campana. The audience and venue were wonderful. Someone even came all the way from California to see us...and she said it was worth the trip. It's always difficult enough to attract folks who live all the way down the street, so that was nice to hear.
This is a clip of me reading "Hymn Latte" at that show.
Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's Big Poetry Giveaway.
Hope you discovered some new poets and blogs. As for the winners of my drawing:
Michael won Ai's "Cruelty/Killing Floor"
Lana Hechtman Ayers won the latest issue of Thin Air Magazine.
Until next year...
