Urban poet Yvonne Estrada reads four poems featuring topics ripped from the bloody streets of Los Angeles.
You can read more of Estrada’s work in Mischief, Caprice and Other Poetic Strategies and Catena, or find her on MySpace. Estrada is a well-established guerrilla reader – she’s read poetry from the top of a downtown L.A. building, and once was part of a group that put poetry disguised as schedules on public transit.

This guerrilla reading took place in the ambulance yard of the L.A. County Emergency Medical Services Authority in the City of Commerce.
Hey Guys – you continue to inspire me to create my own damn Guerilla Reads so FINALLY I’m doing something about it. I signed up for an I-Movie class tomorrow at the local MAC store. Wish me luck. I liked Yvonne’s grittiness probably inspired by her day job and that rocks her poems. Great setting, Yvonne…Mary Kennedy Eastham, Author, ‘The Shadow of a Dog I Can’t Forget’ and the novel-in-progress ‘Night Surfing – A Story of Love & Wonder in the Waves of Malibu’
