California Sightings & Delirious Hem, Kundiman Edition

Received scrap this week from a friend — “count down/up to take off for another world.” The clock is ticking on my time left in California so some last-minute adventures with my book below:

1) Jubilee/Molossus Showcase Sunday, May 23 @ 1pm @ the Silver Lake Jubilee’s Literary Village with Monica Carter & Jamey Hecht!

2) Press Release Reading as part of Saturation Art & Music Festival @ the Riverside Art Museum, 3425 Mission Inn Ave. Event is 12-4pm, I’ll be reading in the 1st hour.


Check out We all Belong to a Love Song Called Kundiman, the 1st 2 rounds of Delirious Hem, Kundiman edition, which I curated after contributing a blog post of my own in February. I was curious to see what my fellow Kundiman poets had to say and have been amazed by their insightful, funny, fabulous, gorgeous, fierce and kind words about what they love, their poetic ancestors, each other’s work and more. Check out Tamiko Beyer’s ruminations on Myung Mi Kim, Purvi Shah on the revolutionary potential of the love poem, a delicious lyric essay by Beatrix Yael Villafranca, Cynthia Arrieu-King’s provocative poems, Bushra Rehman on Gloria Anzaldúa, Jai Arun Ravine & Margaret Rhee on each other’s work & Soham Patel on Mei-Mei Berssenbrugge. Round 3 set to go up later this week!

Thanks for reading!
