This is the episode where I broke my own rule about one poem per episode on our National Poetry Month episodes. We are squeezing in the work by two talented poets on Episode 43.

Author Photo t.j. peters is a humorist and filmmaker dwelling atop a mount in Los Angeles, CA. To alleviate the mind-numbing rigmarole of the big picture show, t.j. writes short prose and poetry, often relying on irony and paradoxes to examine things large and small in scale. His recent work can be found in “The Blackstone Review”, “Westwind, UCLA’s Journal of the Arts”, “The Higgs Weldon”, and is forthcoming in “Unbroken Journal”. Currently, t.j. is shopping a chapbook of poetry with Chicago-based author Mark Magoon. Find him at or on Twitter.
