Radio Radio! (I wanted to name our dog radio, but he wouldn't let me)

I just had the pleasure of being on the radio with some of my favorite people. Nicole Callihan asked me to join a group of New York women writers for WBAI's celebration of International Working Women's Day. The writers were, Kristin Dombek, Sanjana Nair, Stephanie Hopkins and myself. In case you missed it or wanted to see a couple of the poems I read, here you go:

From Sharks in the Rivers:

Sharks in the Rivers (
Widening Road
The Same Thing
City of Skin (Page vs. Stage YouTube)

New Poems:

Downhearted (Here, in Guernica and audio version)
During the Impossible Age of Everyone (Forthcoming from Catch Up)

It was fun to read poems. It's always fun to read poems. I never get tired of it. Which is a good thing considering that this month launches an extensive tour. Gearing up for going on the road soon.  

Heeeereee weeeee goooooo!

Ada, I love "Downhearted". You've such a way with turning words into such beautiful and vivid visuals. I can't wait to see more of your new work.
