GuerrillaReads No. 68: MIKE the PoeT

MIKE the PoeT has a date with Density.

He’s got so much guerrilla poetry street cred, that we’re featuring him for a second week in a row. Mike is a fixture in the LA literary scene, writing about the city and its subcultures:

Who’s Sunset Strip sipping?
As the neon super-semiotics
is punctuating the power of place
In this distinctive social space
you call your own home

Mike also blogs at KCET and he’s been featured in the LA Times.

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.
