the stars are out tonight

My friend Al and I went to the Out of the Blue tonight to Doug Holder's feature. I read a long prose poem piece I've been working on and Al had a great piece he performed impeccably. We met a cool girl named Lisa whom we drove home, and now I'm home myself in my Fortress of Solitude.

Today = ten hours at Starbucks, one hour of Star Trek, and a couple of hours of minor poetry stardom. 'Twas an all-star day.

Good for you. Glad to see a writer who isn't intimidated by ambition.

It was really great to meet you Jade. I thought your poem was really amazing, and I hope we can go to more poetry things together!

btw, you mentioned how you'd like to switch between serious and funny in your poetry more often. i actually think you did that really well in that line where you mention bright eyes. at least i laughed out loud.
