He pours stuff into cups for a living, and really, really loves to hear poems read aloud by people who care about them. He lives in Denver, Colorado; he has no dog, and no family.
Note that tonight’s open poetry slam is a speed slam with 3-, 2-, and 1-minute rounds. Slam winners qualify for the 2018 World Qualifier.
