A heaping amount of poetry

Thanks to a couple of pints of Jeni's I got to attend Writing Wrongs open mic last night. First time I'd been there on a Tuesday night. A good crowd was on hand for the poetry and Scott Woods feature. The open mic was electric, there was some fine poets who read last night. I read too, Everywhere at Once, and did a decent job with it. Scott had a strong feature. Glad I got to go.

Last Sunday I was on internet radio as part of the panel with Miss Vernell, Miss J. and Wali. We had a fun and spirited discussion about the greatest poets of all time. I got my picks of William Carlos Williams and Sylvia Plath into play and was the bad judge when it came to Saul Williams. I regret the comment about Tupac getting shot again after he was not chosen. I hope they have me back as a talking head soon.

Tonight it's open mic at Writers Block. Starts at eight at Kafe Kerouac. Maybe I'll have something new, maybe not.
