Someone’s Utopia Spring Readings


Someone’s Utopia, my new book of poems released April 1st. This comes w/relief in finally seeing the end of a ten year long process and deep gratitude for all those in Buffalo and at Black Ocean who helped these poems get to where they could be.

Here’s some upcoming readings. Looking forward to hearing poets new to me and hear new new words from old friends (and Cheryl). Links below. Frolic.
