Brownstone Poets Anthology 2011

All the featured poets during 2010 will be eligible as well as all the poets who support the Brownstone Poets readings by coming at least 3 to 4 times to either the Ft. Greene or Brooklyn Heights reading or both during 2010. One poem only from all the featured poets during 2010 and from the poets who come to the readings at least 3 to 4 times during 2010. The poem must be emailed as either as a word document attachment or within the body of the email. You can submit any previous published poem or simultaneous submission. No hate poems against anyone’s race, religion, creed, sexual orientation or gender. No excessive usage of four-lettered words. I will contact all eligible poets in January 2011.

Finally Did it!

Finally did go for that chop!  Tired of doing the trims myself.  $20 for a great cut at Gladys Unisex in Corona, Queens.

Even my mom likes it and she’s hard to please.

This was me back in June 2010 at Poets House. 
Back in the days at my Sparks Feature in October 2005
and at my first Poets House Reception in 2007.

Found this Video of Me on BAM BAM SLAM

Found this video of me taken at the Nightingale Lounge a few years back (December 2007) by Bam Bam Slam.

The pieces read were from “The Cupcake Chronicles” (Friday evening before midnight, February 13, 2009, (Friday evening before midnight, February 13, 2009 and Saturday after midnight, August 7, 2010) and “PMS Pizza.”


I’m more subtle these days, but I’m still old school with the PMS Pizza.

Enjoy my cupcakes and pizza.
