i don't even like poetry

did a reading last night in brooklyn for the stain of poetry series. read some poems on stage with kendra. at one point i started clapping and stomping and singing to try to get kendra to dance like a horse but she just stared at me. it went on for about a minute. people laughed. it's good when people laugh. although lately i've been thinking of ways to do a reading so that no one would laugh at all and it would be completely silent and people would go home and eat maybe soup or something and then go to bed and when lying in bed they would maybe think back on the reading and then maybe not sleep for a while.

afterwards some people bought books and said "great reading" and then one person stopped me and said, "who are you? where can i go online to read more about you guys? i don't even like poetry but i really loved that."

i told her we specialize in poetry for people who don't like poetry, and then i wanted that to be a tagline for something, so i added it to the description of morocco on my website
