I drew more than I wrote and then I played piano more than I drew. After that I wrote more than I drew and played. Right now, I am somewhere smack dab in the middle.

How did you hear about Living Poetry?

"My Son, The Man" by Sharon Olds + "I am a Finn" by James Tate (tie)

Why are you joining LP? What activities are you planning to attend?

Once I stopped reading comic books and thought: what next?

Which poet or poetry book are you currently reading?

David Kirby, Denise Duhamel, Leigh Stein, Misti Rainwater-Lites, Xander Mellish, Alina Gregorian, Frederick Seidel, James Tate, Yu Jian, Joe Brainard, (along with his paintings), Lydia Davis, Evelyn Hampton, David Markson – of those presently or almost presently writing.

    Thanks for the get well wish, both of us were pretty sick, antisocial and looking like shit, well at least I looked that way.

    This Just In: Stephanie, formerly thought to "rock" does not, in fact, "rock." I'm so sorry. It's 6:40pm and I'm nowhere near ready to get over to Hillsborough, though, I swear, I've looked forward to it all damn day. Please forgive me for bailing once again. Next time, next time!!

    It took me a while to relate your comment on slavery to mine, funny, you funny :-)
    Meetup is somewhat confusing.
