- Still Looking Out for Number One
- The Party

- What the Doctor Said
- 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
