DRYLAND’S POETRY PARTY LINE

Our friends over at DRYLAND, the literary journal out of South Central Los Angeles, have opened up a Poetry Party Line. I adore this concept! Alls you got to do is call (213)297-8088, introduce yourself/where you are calling from, and read your poem (2 minute max). Then send your 50 word bio to submissions@dryland.org

They just accepted my new poem Con Brio, you can hear it here. THANKS DRYLAND!!!!

You can read it here:
Con Brio

Don’t answer the alarm clock. If you do, don’t get up. If you do, don’t shower. If you do, don’t deodorize. If you do, don’t antiperspirize. If you do, don’t do the oatmeal. If you do, don’t wear clean clothes. If you do, don’t wear socks. If you do, don’t wear shoes. If you do, don’t tie them. If you do, don’t do some cliché-ass knot. If you do, don’t walk anywhere. If you do, don’t leave home. If you do, don’t go to work. If you do, don’t go sober. If you do, don’t actually work. If you do, don’t do it well. If you do, don’t be modest. If you do, don’t rush to break eye contact with your crush. If you do, don’t be afraid to touch your crush’s arm. If you do, don’t smash. If you do, never stop. If you do, don’t answer your spouse’s call. If you do, don’t tell the truth. If you do, don’t go home. If you do, go home swinging.
