I started off by explaining that I’m not in fact a poet, but I did rewrite one of my prose pieces into a poem with the help of the “return” key. It worked out pretty well.
People laughed at all the right moments.
I like that.
I like reading.
I need to write more, so I can read new work, instead of just the increasingly old standards. I feel like I’m going to be on the casino route soon.
Hopefully, Camp Betty made some money. I want to go. Toshi Reagon, Libby Kirkpatrick, Leslie Helpert, Pamela Means, Melissa Ferrick… too cool and that’s just for starters.
