I featured last night at the St. Louis Poetry Slam.


I decided to do mostly new/unheard work, with a couple of standards thrown in

  1. #safetytipsforladies – Rick Ross
  2. #safetytipsforboys – Taylor Swift
  3. Trojan
  4. A Love Poem As Directed By Wes Anderson
  5. Just Do It
  6. Duncan MacLeod Drinks Alone (from Bodies Made of Smoke)
  7. Primer
  8. Quadriplegic

I had a lot of fun doing this set. It was really nice to get back out in front of an audience with this kind of variety.

I did record the entire show, and I’m posting a piece here and there. This is #safetytipsforladies – Rick Ross (banter with the audience included).


Bodies Made of Smoke got a review over at Sabotage, which you can check out here.

I’ll be reading at Mellow Pages Library in June and they got the copy of Bodies Made of Smoke that I sent to them. It’s really cool to be part of an amazing project.
