I was invited to read at the
Tsunami Books Saturday Readers Series
for the month of April 2012
Here is my performance on Youtube:
On Saturday, April 14, 2012 I read with two other poets from Portland, OR. I read and performed work from my first two books and my new chapbook, "Wildweed." It was my first formal reading of my work in Eugene, Oregon.
Poems read and performed:
1. "Death Of The Poet: In reply to 'Response and Reconciliation' by Octavio Paz"
2. "Poezija: The Ballerina"
(Written in 1990 for Nina Ananiashvili, prima-ballerina of the Bolshoi Ballet), (Dedicated today to the final performance of Eugene Ballet's Jennifer Martin).
3. "Chair Dreams"
4. "Modern Miracles"
5. "You And I"
6. "The New Frontier"
7. "Oh Big Sky !"
8. "Little Toy Gun"
My intention with this blog is to catalog and update my progress as I pursue my writing career in retirement. I will be posting about poetry events I am involved in, as well as the publishing and performing of my work. Here you can observe my adventures. Feel free to comment.
