Shopping for Deer



Last night, I performed at the Society for the Preservation of Wild Culture New Vaudeville show at the Rivoli in Toronto, last night. It's a great concept -- a series of interesting performances, short demonstrations, and talks for the audience. Performers included Paul Dutton, Jim Shedden, and the chef d'affaires, Whitney Smith. The whole thing was framed in a kind of Prairie Home Companion for the Post Modern age feel there were voice-over radio hosts and announcements and transitional music played from old records playing on neolithic record players.

I performed a PowerPoint-enhanced reading of a few poems including Shopping for Deer, Inverting the Deer, and Ancient Constellations: Dinosaur Porn. Here's one short video of the poem (with music) and the visuals.
