Here are photos from last night’s launch and reading of Amaryllis: Collected Poems. HOO-HA!

Mr. Husband was MC for the evening. He ad-libbed a totally fictional bio for me that included my stint in the French Foreign Legion, my career as a professional break dancer in the ’80s and one of the original Fly Girls, and how I learned about poetry when I was in prison. According to the bio, I have never married and have no children.
Just kidding. Look at me laughing at his antics. Simone (Daughter #2) sold books for me. She rocks!
