My Two Favorite Poets

Shanna Compton and Jen Knox are on tour together supporting their books Down Spooky and Gringo Like Me respectively.

I am worried about them out there on the road without me in the back seat, drinking Silver Bullets and amusing myself.

Please take a close look at this schedule, and if you know anyone in these locations please tell them not to miss any of these parties. They will regret it, but in the good way.
