I gave some of the poems from Applies to Oranges their DC re-debut. I don't think I've read any of them to a DC audience since early in 2006, when I was just starting to put the manuscript together.
I was very happy with the reaction I got on Thursday -- the poems seemed to hold people's attention, even though they are not funny. I feel very awkward and raw reading unfunny poems. I have my funny-poet schtick down pat; my sincere and emotional poet schtick is still a work in progress.
