Bamboozled!

Well, not really. But I was surprised last night, showing up at the reading. I didn't quite know what to expect. In my mind, I was expecting some small group of people. Not an audience of 40 or so people. And there were about six of us reading, round robin style. Interesting group. I was flat, I think, kind of taken aback; it didn't seem the crowd was my target audience. I read three poems from my book: "On the Persistence of the Letter as a Form," "The Flesh," and "Small Wonder."

I'm listening to Steve Martin's album Let's Get Small. Genius stuff.

[[On the Persistence of the Letter as a Form,"]]

God, I love that poem. It... reaches something. It gives me chills.
