Love and gratitude to everyone who helped ring in 2019 during Beat Night at the Portsmouth Book & Bar. View this video for a glimpse into that inspiring night of words and music! Special thanks to host and Portsmouth Poet Laureate Mike Nelson for inviting me to feature as well as fellow writer Brenna Lilly. Much appreciation to the Beat Night band for enriching my poetry reading and guitar improvisation with a whole different dimension of sound.
For my set, I read poems from my ongoing series titled “Gravity Darkening.” This free verse series is designed to play off of visual imagery on the page as well as pauses of white space that audibly shapes the way the poem is read aloud.
