  • Fear
  • Still Looking Out for Number One
  • The Party
  • My Death
  • Mother
  • What the Doctor Said
  • Gravy
  • Late Fragment

The best expected thing from giving a poetry reading: spending time with the poetry!

The best unexpected thing from giving a poetry reading: feeling the power of  the writing transcend my own shaking voice…getting a sense of the strength and integrity of the work and what happens when it is called up.

Scariest thing: shakey voice, breathless, trembling
Best remedy: Jan Van Stavern
