I picked up all those books in the pic to the right at SPD’d Open House a few weeks back. I’d love to say I read them all in the past month but April was all about new poems and very little reading. No worries, though, still got to go to some great readings and have been reading bits and pieces of two (so far) excellent books in Days I Moved Through Ordinary Sounds and Vegan Soul Kitchen.
• The Dead Emcee Scrolls: The Lost Teachings of Hip-Hop by Saul Williams
• Rattlesnake Grass: Selected Shorter Poems, 1956-1976 by John Oliver Simon
• The Book of Perceptions by Truong Tran
