Two Features!!

Late Wednesday afternoon I was one of the featured poets who read on the lawn by the Altadena Farmers Market where many families were lounging.  Khadija Anderson was the organizer and host.  And I performed three of my classic food poems: Owed To Aluminum, The Planet Of The Oreos, and French Toast.

Then, that same evening I was the featured poet for Jessica Wilson's Writer Wednesdays at Bob's Espresso Bar in North Hollywood.  I read seven poems chosen at random from seven of my chapbooks: Just One Cell In The Concrete Bloodstream, Sense, Desktop Love, Why Jupiter Rains Tears, The man with small hands, Cube, and Model.

Chapbook and Feature!!

My latest chapbook is out! Twenty poems composed between April and July 2013. I debuted the shortest poem from it, San Diego Zoo (which just so happens to be a Campbellad), last night as the featured workshop leader for the opening night of the 2013 ZZyZx Poetrypalooza tour in the patio of Holy Grounds Coffee & Tea in El Sereno.
You can get a copy of Ball Of Fire any Saturday afternoon between 3 and 5pm inside the backroom of the Santa Catalina Branch of the Pasdena Public Library on 999 E. Washington Blvd. where I run a workshop and reading series, or, order it via by selecting Send Money and directing payment of $5 to
