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.
