Yesterday I was one of 10 featured poets at a school in Monrovia. I performed my poems "I Got The American Right" and "W". The students appreciated my sense of humor.

I forgot to mention on Friday I was one of two featured poets at a home in Hacienda Heights where they have a montlhy book club meeting for a women's group called "Las Duenas". I read them my poems "Homo Superior", "A Life Without Latinos", "Semi-Automatic Suicide" (by request) and "She Is A Poem".
