Reading Audio

I read some poems Sunday night in Atlanta and Pop Up Radio recorded it as well provided the music. The audio is here. I begin at about the 1 hour, 30 minute mark and read for only about six or seven minutes or so. The other readers are Jimmy Lo, Amy Pursifull, Laura Carter, and Scott Daughtridge.

Empathy in the Age of Trolls

I did an interview with an author I like named Travis Nichols last week that went up on the Atlanta-based arts and culture site Fanzine today. The book's funny -- it's told from the perspective an internet troll who is writing in the comments thread of a culinary site called Nichols is also a poet, and the book has that compressed, precise feel. The interview's here if you want to give it a read.
