This weekend I'm heading up to D.C. to read at the Burlesque Poetry Hour reading series.

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.
