Do you live in Milwaukee and like poetry? I have a flier for you!

Maybe you live in Milwaukee and like poetry? If that's true, then have I ever got a flier that you should see.

I will be reading in Milwaukee this coming Sunday, June 1 at Microlights with Ashleigh Lambert and Adam Fell.

The reading is at 7pm, the address is on the flier. Ashleigh and Adam are awesome. Poetry.

More details here.

Osterhout, What's Up?

"Osterhout, What's Up?" Hilarious video by Sam Osterhout, Theo Sena, and Dave Park that is related to a project we're working on.

My childhood isn't for sale.

Three Poems at Paper Darts

I've got three new poems — "Harry Houdini," "Michael Applebaum," and "Jon DiSalvatore" — up with Paper Darts with three illustrations by Dan Forke. (That's one of them above.)

These are from a series of poems that I'm maybe calling Person of the Day poems. Michael Applebaum is a Canadian mayor. He's probably better than Rob Ford by default. Jon DiSalvatore is a minor league hockey player. Last season he was the captain of the Houston Aeros. I started that poem while he was still playing for them.

I had a dream last night that I was hanging out with friends in a roller skating arcade and no one wanted to play a game with me where the arcade machine was in the water and you had to roller skate in the water. I was pretty disappointed. You needed two people to play, so I didn't get to play.
