Compound Cal will be reading from his latest book in Chevy Chase, Maryland on July 6th.
He posted the following note on Facebook and has sent it to me twice already. Why he won't just post it himself on the page I do not know. He's like that. He's the great originator of the half-hearted attempt.
I'll be reading these and other terrifically mediocre and depressing poems July 6th at 7 pm at the Friendship Heights Village Center, 4433 South Park Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland. I may wear a hat. I do zany voices.
At some point I tear off my shirt. Sometimes there is an intermission while I sit down and catch my breath. Once, someone left in the middle and I followed him into the street. You can buy my new book after I'm finished. It's TINY. It will take me longer to count out your change than it will take you to read it. If none of that convinces you, then you are dead to me.
And even though I already bought the damn book at a MUCH higher price, he sends this link for others, not me, not the sucker, to get it for just $7. I hate him. I'm thinking of sending him an envelope full of gluten.
