I’ll have a tent, a sleeping bag, four boxes of my new book, and all the love my heart can carry. I’m coming to you; meet me there. And also probably: Chicago, Denver, Omaha.
Jon Rutmozer made this here poster, thanks Jon! Thanks to all the people on the poster. Thanks to all these series organizers who accommodated my ridiculously acute time frames and some last minute requests from me: Donald and Jamalieh, Megan Williams, Tim Shaner, Feng Chen, Mark Cugini, Wendy in L.A., Gerald Ma, Holly Coleman, Al Abanado, Aubrey Lenahan, Dottie Lasky, Peter Johnson, Joel Craig, Wendy & Kit, Matt H, Brandon S & TC, Jeremiah Gould, Tim Johnson, Janey, Jeremy Springstead. Your creativity, energy, and patience is amazing. America, you are amazing for having so many people dedicated to live poetry. Except South Dakota. I can’t figure out what’s going in South Dakota.
This is being done on an epically shoe-string everything. I’ll post more on the preparation for and the tour itself as it happens/catches on fire outside of Tempe.
