feed the poet

I sold my original poetry for the first time on the streets of Berlin in the summer of 2011. The three poems raised questions about the nature of art, the economics of making art, and the value assigned to artistic pursuits. I joined the panhandlers holding cardboard "Will Work for Food" signs on busy streetcorners. Survival and the sublime intermingled in this project designed during an uncertain economic climate.
