Daddy Needs His Medicine

Last night was the 15 Views of Orlando release party at Urban Rethink. Allow me to show you one photo of the show.

The turnout for this show was absolutely awe inspiring, to see the venue packed to near fire hazard capacity for a book brings me great joy (I will however refrain from calling out the local poetry ‘community’ for not attending one of the most important nights in Orlando’s overall literary community). A beautiful night for a beautiful book. If you haven’t bought a copy, get one. There will be more release parties. Be on the look out for them.

Because of the current big project, I’m producing more poetry as of late. You can check out a poem of mine over at Ginger Piglet Press over here and also a poem of mine in the all poetry supplement of Stymie here.

I’ve decided that I need to raise some drinking money for AWP in four weeks and the best way to do that is offer you a hell of a deal.

For $20, you get an autographed copy of Dodging Traffic, The Serial Rapist Sitting Behind You is a Robot, and How Esmeralda Estrus Got Her Revenge and an original poem handwritten and signed. For $15, you get EsmeraldaRapist, a mystery gift and an original poem handwritten and signed. Either way, you can wire the money over to senryujournalist at gmail dot com. All proceeds go to keeping me well stocked in Vitamin Jameson in Chicago.
