I’ve been prepping a bit this afternoon. I find it fun to develop a program with a theme or a flow to it that works for a particular audience–like putting puzzle pieces together.
Tomorrow’s reading has a little bit of Asian feel (ooo–chicken haiku, anyone?) and a little bit of Southern feel. Might share a couple of poems from Raleigh Review as well.
Should be an entertaining evening. Come join us!

Why not a Southern Asian feel? I’m probably going to open with one of my favorite REM lyrics a capella just for the pure hell of it. Why not! You sound GREAT and I can’t wait to hear your stuff and read with you again!!!
LOL. Now I’m getting hungry! 🙂 See you soon, Harry-the-Great!

Good luck with the reading. It sounds fabulous! BTW, love the idea of puzzle pieces being put together to produce a great product. Wonderful analogy!
Thanks, Jack! I’ve had a couple of great coaches who helped me realize how important it is to think about the audience. I may not always get it right, but I like the challenge of designing a performance based on who I’m reading for.
Nice! I hope your poetry reading goes great 🙂
Thanks, Christy! I’m looking forward to it!
