Quiet Lightning: Dear California

I was super-honored to read my poem “Dear California” alongside some brilliant poets, prose writers, and artists at Quiet Lightning‘s November 13 show at The Lab, with The Center for the Art of Translation.

A bunch of awesome friends showed up, and Orie took some photos. Afterwards, the bros (Francisco, Ty, Orie) and I went to Bender’s for whiskey Wednesdays and fried things some high-brow intellectual discussion about the show.

It feels weird to put my face on the Internet, but maybe people who do not have the privilege to live in our smug, foggy city want to see me reading my poem. If not, just scroll through the playlist to see some other people reading and drawing (true story!) their work.
