Today is the day I release a new chapbook of poetry.
Ogopogo is a cross-disciplinary performance series.
Greg Bem is a multidisciplinary, individual and collaborative artist whose poetry and other creative works are rooted in place.
The following texts were created for four readings in Olympia, Portland, and Oakland. Each long piece was written in single sittings, semi-spontaneously, at a computer in a library in Kirkland, Washington. The pieces were only slightly edited after the fact, with the main intention behind them being a Spicer-esque channeling of energy, spirit, and emotion.
