The lumpy road to Zorthian Ranch in Altadena where I was featured at 1pm along with CaLokie, Seven Dhar, and G.T. Foster. Seemed appropriate to read four poems from my book The Alternate Sky: Joshua Tree Trip, Hand-Held Mirror Poem Without Glasses, 99 Cent Store Valentine, and Did I Planet.
At 5:30pm, as part of LitFest Pasadena, I read two of my frankenpoems: Allusive Sights (published in the Altadena Poetry Review) and The Best (from my book Rectangular Man Dream Horses)

Yesterday afternoon at the Santa Catalina Branch Library in Pasadena ten copies each were distributed to eight of the ten poets published here, then they read two or three poems from the book.
That same evening poets published in the APR were given their copies in the sumptuous backyard of the editor, Thelma T. Reyna.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this tome for hours!
