On June 24, I read with Mark Allen Jenkins, Megan Peak, and Caitlin Pryor in Deep Ellum at Kettle Art Gallery as part of WordSpace’s Pegasus Reading Series. Dallas is, more or less, my hometown, so in addition to sampling far too much of the Texas cuisine that shaped my palate, I had the chance to catch up, sparingly, with a few old friends and some of my family. One of those friends for decades, David Dunlap, was kind enough to take this video of my portion of the reading.
The reading is a selection of poems from The Bureau. David deserves all credit for the video’s titles, graphics, and editing. A fitting document, I think, of the poems and those few minutes in Dallas.
