East Side Storytellin' 62 recap, podcast now online

The East Side Storytellin' 62 recap and podcast are now available online!  Although I highly recommend that you take the time to listen to gifted singer/songwriter Lauren Farrah's set, you can hear my poetry set at the very beginning of the podcast, as well as a brief Q&A with Lauren, host Chuck Beard, and myself at the very end of it.  Artists unite!

(Tonight, I join the ranks of the firefly)

Tonight, I join the ranks of the firefly,
lighting up the summer sky,
my glowing cigar lifted high.

UPDATED: Confessions of a Cover(ed) Girl

Thanks to my peach fuzz,
albino eyelashes and eyebrows,
and pale, blotchy skin,
when I don't
wear makeup,
I look like
a baby opossum --
white and pink
with small, beady eyes
and soft, fuzzy skin.

(I know how to be)

I know how to be
what everyone else thinks I should be.
Now I must learn how to be me.
