What a night! I had a marvelous time being the featured poet on the Coastside Poetry Series and listening to the excellent open mic that followed. So many great voices. I shared new poems and a few gems from my book. My reading, about 20 minutes long, is here. I got enthusiastic responses especially for my crown of American sonnets addressing Black Lives Matter. “Gob-smacked” was one of many lovely comments I received following my performance. Watch and listen here.
