buddy wakefield

I like Buddy Wakefield a lot.

biscuit5vn1My introduction to poetry readings was interesting.  A few years ago my life consisted mostly of copious amounts of Oxycontin (among other opiates), extreme alienation and reading poetry.  I used poetry to cope with the loneliness and agony when the opiate ration wasn’t enough to distract me.

I wanted to hear live poetry for a reason I cannot remember now.  Google showed only one poetry reading in Orange County.  It happened to be right down the street from where I lived at an independent cafe named “the Ugly Mug”.
