GuerrillaReads No. 67: MIKE the PoeT

MIKE the PoeT is ALIVE in Los Angeles!

Mike Sonksen has been doing guerrilla poetry readings for fifteen years. “On the subway, out on the street, even in the middle of literary events when I wasn’t invited.” His love for the city is rooted in honesty about its beauties and its shortcomings.

I’m alive in Los Angeles
Where there are more angles than isosceles
City topography’s undulating across massive landscapes
We move from chain link to palatial gates in separate economic states

We’ll feature another video from Sonksen next week on GuerrillaReads.
