I’m featured on Poetry.LA!

This was at Stories Bookstore and Cafe in Echo Park, Los Angeles.  Lots of fun!

#9

on the radio,

jayne cortez

says

oh

i don’t care

for inspiration.

no pictures

or music

to ease

my head

into a beautiful

scramble

of wires.

no bullshitting.

just

the words.

first lifted

delicately

to the mouth

like a cup of tea.

but then

this need,

this swig of water

before setting it

to boil.
