My Reading at Pink Pony Last Night

Well, the reading at Pink Pony Express I was eagerly anticipating is over! Someone asked if she could find on my blog one of the poems, a question that put in my head the idea of providing the links to all the poems I read last night. The nicest compliment I received was that my poetry is "precise and beautiful." Thanks, friends, for coming out in the sleety evening. If you could not make it, here are the poems for you:

Cold Pastoral
For Lonely
If the Fire Is in Your Apartment
My father doesn't know Zeus from Zeno (from Payday Loans)
Because my mother whispers on the phone (from Payday Loans)
The Grand Historian Makes a Virtue of Necessity
Little Men
Hungry Ghosts (Part 1); Hungry Ghosts (Part 2)
Approaching Thirty-Seven
There Is No Safety in Distance
