Suggestive suggestions?

This weekend I'm heading up to D.C. to read at the Burlesque Poetry Hour reading series. The protocol at these readings dictates that the reader remove some article or accessory from his/her body following their reading (article is then auctioned to the highest bidder). And so, it's time to consider. Generally, I have little experience stripping for money. Thus far, BPH "stripped" articles have consisted of: earings, a thong, various t-shirts and other shirts Hawiian or otherwise, red silk pants (Ken, you devil), sock puppet, a belt, and an invisible cloak of poetry potential. So...?

Podcasts of two new poems to be featured at MiPOsias

"What If Marvelous Marvin Hagler" and "Foot" will be featured in the forthcoming MiPOesias...and so I've been asked to make Mp3's.


Here are the podcasts I just made. It was not easy, as my mic is effing budget and my P's were overpronounced, but it's probably a better recording than when I did the over-the-phone recording for the New Hampshire Review. I think I got a call waiting beep in the middle of recording.


Enjoy. They are from the new manuscript (in prog).
