I'll finally be back on the West Coast for a little fun next week. I'll be reading in poet/MC/teacher/late-night phone guru Myron Michael's HELIOTROPE reading series at Mama Art Cafe on Friday night. I am so excited to see some folks in the Bay and share the stage with Myron's talented students. They'll open the set and I'll feature.
I am especially nervous because I'll be introducing the new work to the world at this reading. Conversion has been out for some time and the second manuscript, What We Ask of Flesh, is floating around out in the world, so I'm ready to break out the poems nestled there. Even I'll be interested to see what kind of connections I find between the two bodies because I've never let them exist in the same space before, as they are so very different.
The flyer is posted below, but here's the main info.:
