In unexpected places

I love finding poems in unexpected places. I get a giddy zing when I run across poetry on the bus, my phone, or in the bathroom. In fact, years ago, in an effort to get 'poetry to the people' I randomly chose names from the phone book and anonymously mailed out poems. (Sadly, I had to stop this practice when the anthrax scare created suspicion of unexpected mail).  

All of which explains my joy to share poetry next week in a most unexpected place: a massage studio.

The Gentle Dragon Massage & Healing Hideaway will mark their opening with a two-day celebration of music, speakers, demonstrations, prizes — and poetry.  I'm happy to be included in the festivities, and eager to get poetry out of the books and into the world. What fun! Please join me.
