My reading of my prose poem Playing Squiggly, 1953, is up on the web in a live reading at The Other Story.
Originally published in issue 1.2 of The Tishman Review, I was invited to read it aloud with music added by The Other Story. An interview conducted by Ilana Masad follows the reading. I hope you will listen, and support The Other Story.
Please join local poets Emily Newberry, Judith Arcana and Judith Barrington for a dynamic reading from their work.
