I attended the reading tonight at Hugo House and was pleasantly surprised with both your and Erin’s readings. What struck me the most was the interplay of the contrast, your voices were equally vulnerable yet strong. Nice work. I’m looking forward to the High Point event since it’s in my ‘hood.
Greatly enjoyed reading your opus from front to back as you suggested at C&P Coffee on the 1st. Love your work. Also was glad to see you also know Tim Seibles. Tim and I used to drink coffee together in Norfolk when I was singing with Virginia Opera. He reintroduced me to modern poetry at a couple of his readings and I have been going ever since when time allows. I look forward to reading more of your work as soon as I can find it. Also, being an operatic bass it seems I sing always of death, heartbreak and sadness. I hope you are able to find that funny poem again and again. Life has enough darkness. All the best.
