This is me reading a poem I wrote at Bennington, and it now appears in the wonderful journal Forklift, Ohio. I read this poem in New York at the Cornelia Street Cafe, and the poetry editor, kind woman Amanda Smeltz, suggested I submit it. I am so glad to see it finally out in the world! I hope you enjoy the poem, and my apologies for the weird smirk at the end. I don’t often read my poems on street corners.
