Had my first poetry feature tonight at Portland Sprouts. Read for about 10 minutes and 6 poems (well 13 if you count the haikus).
It was great and I had wonderful affirming feedback. Thank you so much Tina “T Love” Smith for inviting me to read. It means a lot.
Would love to say more about it but completely exhausted.
This is going to be a crazy week of poetry for me. I am planning to slam on Sunday at the Rhythmic Cypher reading at Dobra Tea (7pm), on Tuesday I am planning to slam at Port Veritas at Bull Feeney’s upstairs (7:30pm) and I am doing a 15 minute feature at the Poetry Brunch on next Saturday at Local Sprouts (11am).
Just a wonderful and amazing night of poetry. Proud to share the stage with Sam Mercer, Robin Merrill, Tina Smith, a wonderful artist doing an intention piece, and a fantastic feature Antonia Lassar from Brooklyn, NYC.
I also got a beautiful and amazing screenprint of R2D2 at the Art Walk tonight. In the words of Colleen Hoover it’s bemazing.
Also want to let everyone know I will be making a chapbook this weekend, so let me know if you would like one ($5). Planning to call it “Embracing the Geek.”
p.s. Here are the links to the poems I slammed last night.
