It was another good weekend of poetry, sightseeing, and food in Cincinnati for the poetry readings at the Annex Gallery on Saturday, July 24th during the "For A Better World 2019, 2020, and 2021 Exhibit." The Exhibit included both poetry and drawings.
Two of my poems, "Trans Privilege" and "Cognitive Dissonance" were published as part of the 2020 Anthology. I read both of these poems. The reading order was compiled via random drawing. I read first. I think that is the first time I ever won a random drawing!
