moving bits

this friday i'm getting on a plane and flying to nyc. i won't be coming back to the desert for a bit. i'm hoping to stay in nyc til august.
winter, xmas, spring, and summer.
why am i going? well, it's been one of my lifelong dreams to live and to write in the big apple.
i'm going to explore the city, attend poetry readings like crazy, and draft new poems.
oh i just can't wait to walk around. that's my favorite thing. walking til i find a nice cafe. sitting down with a coffee. reading. writing.
oh my little poems, how can i ever thank you for this gift?
are you in the city? let's have coffee!
pinch me.

black blossoms give-a-away!!

Black Blossoms, Rigoberto González's third collection of poems, came out last month. The book has already garnered some stellar reviews.

Wanna win a copy? You sure do! Well, you are in luck because I'm giving away three copies of the book.

How do you win a copy? Well, are you cute....Ha, just kidding. I'm not a wilde boy.

Just leave a comment here or on my facebook wall. Say: I am a black blossom and you will be entered in the give-a-away.

Buena suerte!

I enjoyed the roundtable talk with Rosa and Aracelis. I stress and stress about my prose. I pour all I have into my poems; there's not enough mind-matter leftover for interviews. But Rosa and Aracelis write amazing prose. Yeah!
