Meat for Tea Cirque des Tartes

The release of the new issue of Meat for Tea was celebrated on Saturday, March 7th, 2020, at Sonelab in Easthampton, Massachusetts, at the fabulous Cirque des Tartes. There was music by Dan Whitley and his amazing band, art by Jennifer Coates, video shorts by Luke Jaeger, food and drink in abundance, and readings of poetry! I have three new poems in this latest issue, and of course the new chapbook of Fake Zodiac Signs!

Drew Hutchison was there to film the festivities, and that video should be available soon!  In the meantime, here is his video of me reading at the last Cirque event in December 2019. The two poems being read are “The Library of Atlantis” and “Zeno Tell’s Arrow.” Thanks, Drew!


Readings here and there

We had a great first feature reading at Walnut Street Cafe in Lynn, MA on Jan. 29th, 2020! Thanks so much to them for their warm welcome!  What a pleasure to read on the same stage with some of my favorite poets!
