poetry friday

Have my first poetry feature tonight since August! I have to admit I'm a little nervous, but all should be good. Have my set picked out and it includes a brand new piece and a few older ones. I remember back in the day when I was regular slammer at the Nuyorican, I would spend all of Friday with my stomach in knots awaiting that night's performance. It always turned out fine, sometimes even incredible and people would come up to me and say things like, "you're so natural" and "you make it look so easy." Little did they know I was practically puking from nerves five minutes before the reading. Such is the discreet art of the spoken word.

Then Tim and I are off to St. Marks Poetry Project to hang out with Regie Cabico and Co.
