Last night was the launch party for my latest poetry collection, Milkshakes and Chilidogs, and rather than me reading from my book, I asked my friends to read their favorite poems from my book. I was worried that it would be too self-indulgent but it worked well. There is nothing quite like hearing someone else read one of your poems aloud. My parents were there and my father, who makes the best macaroni and cheese ever, offered his interpretation of my poem “Comfort Food”. All told, over half of the poems were read over chocolates and wine.
Then I was up early this morning for my appearance on the 3-D News program on WHUP FM, Hillsborough. The recording has been posted to their website. My bit starts around fifteen minutes in.
