In case you missed it, here's the video of Wednesday's reading for the Gloustershire Poetry Society. I begin around the 35-minute mark, UK Beat Poet Laureate Karlostheunhappy begins around the 1-hour mark, and the rest of the time you'll find a wonderful array of other poets to hear. So many thanks to the Gloustershire Poetry Society, host Kate Jenkinson, director Jason Conway, co-feature Karlos, and all the other fine and talented people who contributed.
My setlist: “Odd Missive,” “Out and In Audible,” “I Hear Change,” “Bloodshot,” “Revolutionary Sentiments,” “Unwinding,” “Dog Day,” “Dog Day Too,” and “Redux Isn't Pronounced Ray Do, But That Hasn't Stopped Me." The first four poems come from Rattle and Numb and the rest come from The Wrest of the Worthwhile.
