Episode Description:

This is John Rhodes San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV co-hosted by Clara Hsu. On my segment I have a clip of 3 poets from the Bird and Beckett Bookstore in San Francisco. These poets are Jane Ormerod, Brant Lyon, and Mary Mackey. Jane and Brant are part of Uphook Press and live in the New York area. Jane reads extensively all over the world often with other poets from Uphook Press. Brant Lyon also runs the Hydrogen Juke Box reading series in New York. Mary Mackey is the most prolific poet I know and often writes about South and Central America. Her new book Sugar Zone is like that. I was very pleased to find I could understand most of the Portuguese she recited in this clip as I am fluent in Spanish.

In the 2nd segment with Clara Hsu, Mel C. Thompson reads. He is deeply into Zen and is one of the most well-published poets in the U.S. He is much like Ivan Arguelles who was on an earlier show who will stoop to no end to get his poem in any publication he could find. I wish I had the stamina to do that.
