Featured Reading @ Fox Chase Reading Series

  • Ryerss Museum and Library 7370 Central Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19111 USA (map)

Hey, people, I'm doing a poetry reading. Hells yes, it's been a long time since I got 20 minutes to talk at people. You should swing by. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll swear I'm better that a bunch of people dressed up in spandex singing about... Wait, what were they singing about? Who were they? How do you put that on your resume? Hi, I was Cat #9 lives? Zing. I'm sorry. That was unwarranted. The zing, I mean. The zing was unwarranted because that cat joke was on point. Wait, what was I talking about again? Oh, right. Come listen and watch me read some poe-emz about my emo feelings.

Facebook Invite:

Also featured is Richard Okewole.

There is an open mic after the features so bring your poems to share your emo feelings with me.

Tickets: FREE (That's a lot of bang for your lack of a buck! Though you should bring a buck so you can tip the museum. Yes, you heard me, the museum. I'm reading poems in a museum. Boo-yah!)
