I was on the Counter Culture team.

I've been reading poetry at various open mics for the last three and a half years, and have read at Arcosanti the last two years. In the later half of 2005 I started to get become more focused on slam-specific poetry, and have been tailoring my poems to fit the specifications required by slam. I'm 25 years old, and attending ASU for a Creative Writing degree. My writing is very much influenced by Raymond Carver.

Words on the poem:

I wrote this based on a former bar in Phoenix called the Emerald Lounge. Once on my way to California, I stopped in early in the morning to have a drink and relax before heading out, and I noticed I wasn't the only one there. So this piece is for the opener's and closer's of the bar. Of the lonely grace we stumble through the days with.
