On June 26, I gave a reading at the Mercantile Library in Cincinnati, along with Margo Taft Stever and Jennifer Franklin. Margo read from her new chapbook, The Lunatic Ball (Kattywompus Press, 2015). Jennifer read from her first full-length collection, Looming (Elixir Press, 2015). It was a pleasure to read with them! The poems I read all had some connection to the Cincinnati area: "Sea Level Rising," "Falling in Love at the YMCA Pool," "Retreat," "A Boy's Room," "Thinking of Easter," "Matinee," and "Familiar World."
