Yesterday afternoon I was the featured poet for The Poetry Zone reading series hosted by Virginia Mariposa Dale at the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum in Santa Barbara.
I regaled the audience with tales about and read the eight poems (Memory of Tire; Showing a DVD on the Galapagos to a Ninth Grade Class; Nine birds; What Are You Willing to Do for Love; I'm In Love with This Building; You're an Amusement Park, Baby; Munchies; and The Planet of the Oreos) in my newest book promotion sampler.
