Last night I featured at Tia Chuchas in Sylmar again, this time as one of The Inner Four. I performed five spoken word classics (I Got The American Right, Interchangeable, Before We Died, Homo Superior, and Mr. Hide) from my compilation Spoke In Word, and three one-day-old poems (A pair of lips for the apocalypse, Transient, and Essentials).

I was one of the featured poets yesterday afternoon for the Rrose In A Prose reading series at Stories Books in Echo Park. I read three poems from my new compilation Spoke In Word: Mr. Hide, Eternal Epitaph, and Just Words.
Yes, by special request, I have constructed an anthology of my 20 best spoken word poems from both sides of the century mark. Now available for a mere $5!

Picked up a copy of this gorgeous new anthology tonight at the publication reading inside Half Off Books in Whittier. I've got three classic poems in it (Kitty Hawk California, Fourth Lesson, and The Artist) about my daughter, and had the chance to read all of them as a featured poet.
