New Interview up at Dashboard Horus Magazine

Well if you like it when I go on and on about things, you’re going to love this new interview with me conducted by Marie C Lecrivain in a new feature up now at Dashboard Horus magazine! I’ve been lucky enough to be interviewed a handful of times over the years, but I really loved responding to Marie’s unique questions generally revolving around my new book “I Am Not Writing a Book of Poems in Hawaii.” Thanks for the honor! Check it out HERE.

“Poets in L.A.” Written for and Performed at “A Day of Poetry in L.A.”

Here’s a poem I wrote for poets in Los Angeles, read at the extraordinary “A Day of Poetry in L.A.” at the downtown L.A. Central Library event organized by our poet laureate Lynne Thompson and Grant Hier. August 13, 2022. The whole program is a delicious smorgasbord of Los Angeles poets and is well worth watching here.

My First Small Reading from “I Am Not Writing a Book of Poems In Hawaii”

Thanks to Linda Ravenswood invited me to Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore to help celebrate the release of Los Angeles Press’ V6//the Dance. (Thanks Linda!) I read a few poems (including 2 from my new book!) with a great group of poets including L.A.’s poet-laureate Lynn Thompson, Christina Cha, Bernadette McComish, Brian Sonia-Wallace and Colleen Shoshana McKee.
