Now Booking Performance dates for 2022-2023 solo and with Mayhem Poets. Been a rough couple of years with over 50 shows cancelled and pandemically postponed, but am grateful to have been happily teaching a variety of subjects in the BX, spending time with family, editing, reading some great books and writing on the daily.

At this point feel i’ve written about everything. Well, almost everything but everything itself. The Everything Bagel is my thoughts on everything, along with a collection of poetic reflections on family members and friends I have lost along the way. Two of the poems were performed only once, as eulogies and many of the pieces appear here for the first time. I have also included a new Polygon (surrealist poem), updated thoughts on love and Part 3 of Eighteen Edgars. As you’re reading ask yourself, what’s in your heart, in your head and on your…Everything Bagel?
