I'll be one of the featured readers at the Runcible Spoon reading series this coming Friday, March 28, 7:00 pm at the Runcible Spoon Restaurant here in Bloomington. Denise Breeden-Ost will be reading as well, and there will be a tribute to the poetry of the late Joyce B. Adams.
Then on Sunday, March 30, you can hear me on the radio on The Poets Weave, from 11:46-11:51 am Eastern Daylight Time. If you're in Indiana (Kokomo and points south, I believe), you can tune it in on WFIU. If you're elsewhere, you can listen live online. If you're busy or like to sleep till noon on Sundays, it will show up in the archive a few days later, or you can subscribe to the podcast.
I'll be reading three poems: "What This Poem Will Do" (which is one of my few humorous poems ... great, I say that, and now nobody's going to think it's funny!), "Swallowed" (from Valparaiso Poetry Review and Best of the Net 2007), and "Hold" (which is one of my own favorites; I wrote it on a very rainy summer day in Provincetown).
Tune in, turn on, drop out ... oh, wait, wrong slogan. Just tune in.

Other upcoming readings I'm looking forward to:
- The intriguingly-titled "Variations on Funk," featuring the fab foursome of Aimee Nezhukumatathil, Aracelis Girmay, Patrick Rosal, and Tyehimba Jess. April 2, 7 pm, at the John Waldron Arts Center. Be there or be less cool than the cool kids. (Huh?)
- Robert Hass, reading in the Solarium at the Indiana Memorial Union on April 7 at 5 pm.
- Karen Kovacik, reading at the Writers' Center in Indianapolis, Sunday, April 13 at 7 pm.
And I'll be on WFIU again on May 11th. Don't worry, I'll remind you. :)
