word. is my second poetry chapbook, released March of 2009. It was produced as a mini-chapbook, originally intended to be the first in a series of mini-chapbooks that were going to be produced that year. It is now featured as a stand-alone work.
I think word. was more representative of my heart, soul, and style — or the voices that I hear in my head when I write. You will see me breaking away from traditional forms and embracing spoken word influences in this short collection. It was a step in my evolution as a poet. And I want you to have it.
I’ve performed material from word. at open mics and other performances, including the February and March 2009 editions of Poetry Super Highway’s Worldwide Open Reading. I performed “Fables” during March’s broadcast and “Off” during February’s broadcast.
word. was produced in a very small run — only 20 copies. I did not place this in bookstores, so you can only get it here or at one of my performances. I will likely not reprint it once copies are sold out, so get your copy today!
