David Blaine

Author's Bio

I enjoy reciting poetry for small or large groups. Also if you would like to me to conduct any kind of workshop, please contact me. I take Muriel Rukeyser's idea that a poem doesn't need to be written down a step farther. I believe that poetry exists independently of people, and that we can experience it (And write about it!) if we slow down and use our senses. The answers to most of what we are seeking can be found about us every day.
