Thanks to the folks at Yay L.A. Magazine for publishing my poem “Earthquake Poem” today along with a cool photo by Yang Yi. I wrote this a couple of months ago after my friend Zach Singer sent me an “emergency” request to write a poem about the 20th Anniversary of the Northridge Earthquake…which occurred a couple of days before the first Tuesday night open reading at the Cobalt Cobalt Cafe. (Just a month or so before I started hosting that weekly event in 1994.) Thanks Yay L.A.! Check out the poem here.
