I won Best Literary Artist from Artvoice. Thanks to all.
I split the party directly after--my god! it was crowded and, my god! I do not like crowds. I did have some tasty sushi (Tsunami) and ravioli (LeBro's) and pastry (Dolci) and I hugged Gabrielle and then I went to Nietzche's, where it was poet-bartender and jazz and hockey game on mute. I had good talk and BBQ corn chips and hello's in the hall and Susan Peters gave me a pink flamingo with whirring wings for the garden.
I shall call him Sal.
