… is something I’m trying to do more of, and something I haven’t done enough. A friend recently remarked he’d like to be a rockstar/poet. I don’t think this is a new idea. (I think some rockstars think they’re poets but not many poets think they’re rockstars). Maybe I simply need to listen to poems differently, listen to the sound of the words rising from the page to understand this rockin music.

  1. How can this one get no comments? It’s genius! It seems problematic to me that musicians can put on a show, actors put on a show, artists put on a show… writers/poets… read a couple poems and drink wine and eat small cakes.

    Usually I get bored at readings. There needs to be a show!
