After being gone so long, it's time to see what this country of mine has been up to.
The 2006 Poetry Tour: 1 April 2006 — 6 June 2006. I’ll be coming through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Colorado and California and performing at poetry slams, schools, retirement homes, radio stations and other venues. The main event of the tour will be the 2006 Austin International Poetry Festival, where I'm a featured poet. I'll be participating in readings, a slam and an interesting forum. The full schedule can be found on the tour page.
The shows on this tour are going to be a bit different from what I've done in the past. Fewer 3-minute slam poems and more of the unexpected. There's a lot of new work, there's been a lot of life lived since the last time I performed a poem.
