Throwback Thursday


Throwback Thursday to my first little road trip to San Francisco, California with Don Kingfisher Campbell and CalOkie.

Prose, Rhythm and Noise: Muliebrity Vol 2

The lovely lady Elmast Kozloyan read one of my poems “Scraped” that is in my debut chapbook Born to Electrify, which is also going to be published in the Like A Girl Anthology by Lucid Moose Lit. I absolutely love how she read it! It’s available to download for free at Dave Williams and MBT Band Camp page, but here is more great news. You can listen to Raundi, JL Martindale, Sarah Thursday, and Elmast perform their original poetry too! They are accompanied by these amazing jazz musicians, so it’s poetry and music.
