Here’s a clip from my reading this past Thursday at the Grolier Poetry Book Shop in Cambridge, MA. The evening was a total blast and I was lucky to have such an amazing crowd come out to hear me read selections from my chapbook Month of Sundays, along with some brand-new work. I can’t thank the Grolier enough, both for selling my book these past few months and for allowing me the use of their historic building, an absolute landmark of American poetry.
Here I am talking about dogs, babies, and my feelings for both. From “The Super Great Baby Bouncing Business Bureau®” a poem in my book.

Grainy “bigfoot-in-the-distance” type image here, but I can confirm this headcase showed up at my Sketch CageMatch performance at Improv Boston this Saturday. Thank God I’d stepped out for a second to go scope the lobby and make sure he wasn’t around, lucky break there. From what I gathered from the audience after the show he basically berated me for 4 minutes and recounted embarrassing wrestling-related stories from my high school years.
Multiple sources assert that the intense glow coming from his chest was the result of liberally applied baby oil. Psycho. Regardless, I won, and I’ll be back again to defend my title this coming Saturday 6/29, 9pm. Come on out if you can, who knows what he’s going to do next…

So, I wore a star-spangled vest and women’s bell-bottoms for 7 hours for this shoot. Fun times.
I would like to direct your attention to the 20-second mark of this video which, thus far, stands as the undisputed pinnacle of my professional career.

I’m damn psyched to announce that later this month (June 27th, 7pm to be exact) I’ll be giving a reading at The Grolier Poetry Book Shop in Harvard Sq. I could not be happier about the opportunity.
The Grolier, at just over 85 years old, is an undisputed landmark of American poetry and a Harvard Square icon. Over the last few months they’ve been gracious enough to sell and prominently display my debut poetry chapbook Month of Sundays. I’ve considered it an honor and I have been very pleased to have a relationship with such an amazing institution.
