I’d like to be a bit more elaborate about what I’ll be doing on the Academy of American Poets tumblr feed this Monday. I’m going to take advantage of that time to put the local Portland poetry scene on the national map for a day. I am going to film myself reading one short poem of a different Portland-based poet on the hour, every hour, from 6am (PST) until midnight, and then post it to the Academy’s Tumblr right then, throughout the day. I’m going to bike around the whole day and read all over town, in front of different Portlandy places, and take the Tumblr reader through my day through Portland.
I’d love it if you’d follow along. See where I go, and listen to some poems all day. Ok? Alright. I’ll see you dark and early.
