The reading on Sunday was interesting. I've never had a question and answer period after a reading, and the MC asked me to give one so... I now understand quite throughly that many people want poetry to rhyme. Yes, that was made clear.

But hey, I got paid to read! That's never happened before, unless I got paid in buttons and bottle caps.


Here's me before I got on the subway to go to the reading.  The two glowing eyes at the bottom are from the alien I bought last week at the hardware store:

Is that your real hair?

You always have the cutest hair and clothes!

Christine said...

Valerie -- thanks! I spend way too much time picking out clothes for readings -- but I did get fan mail afterwards mentioning, in particular, my pretty dress and necklace. So if they notice that, who cares about the poetry.

Talia -- does she or doesn't she? And what is the nature of "real", really?

Talia said...

Well, you look gorgeous!

glad to hear the reading went well (and that there's still the quaint notion of rhyming po)

for a split second, i thought the dress patterning was a tattoo. of course, in the spheres, that was the desired effect ;-)

also the pleasant demeanor is warming

Cute dress. Cute alien. Rhyming poetry - not so cute.

Christine said...

Yeah. Rhyming poetry. Popular with some folks.
