Click the link to listen to a recording of the radio appearance I made Sunday. I read some of my own work as well as one by Lord Buckley. We also discuss Beat poetry, Las Vegas airports, and the word “doldrums.” I enjoyed myself immensely and hope to do it again soon!
Composed 2012. Gratitude to Michael Lohrman for the title. Read the rest of this entry
A reading of poems composed circa 2009-2012 while Johnny Dionysus Warpath was doing time in the Hart County Jail. He wrote them on Sailor Jerry Rum Labels and used them as wallpaper for his cell. Music by Sterling Wormwood.
Buccaneer beat poetry composed and recorded in Berkeley in early 2007. I believe it was the second composition I ever did.
I’ve experimented with a lot of things in my day.
I mainlined Romanticism and heard Genesis in a creaky, quiet singing voice in Oakland, although the Slim staccato said it was Dakota.
I took a shot of Surrealism and Dallied with daguerrotypical dandies as if it were 1931 and I was the only one who couldn’t read the hands of the crooked clocks (pointing posthaste towards a past purgatorial pointillist punishment), all polka dots and sunspots.
