Reading at Animal Farm Series in BK, August 18th

Wake up sheeple! I'll be performing selections from one of my latest chapbooks, "I Gave You The Gowanus!" at Animal Farm Reading Series, August 18th at Over the Eight in Brooklyn. A few years ago I had a really shitty job delivering equipment to construction projects and I delivered the sign to this bar. Now I get to see what it looks like inside!
