I’ll be having a feature poetry show Monday January 11th at Linneman’s. Open mic starts around 8pm and I’ll go on around 9. I believe this is my first Milwaukee show since releasing Carrying…
And an “Ed Makowski” coming out party, leaving Eddie Kilowatt on a hanger in the closet for now.

This is pretty much the first piece of artwork I’ve made as an adult. I plan to make more of these photo/poem/screen print works. It’s a starting point. This one was donated to the Feed Your Soul fundraiser. It’s based on a poem called “Existing Resources” which reads:
The thief who stole my car
and drove til gas ran dry
was kind enough
to leave their
in the ashtray.
and after a gallon can of fuel
I use it to start my car too
This was part of a collaboration with a photographer, Jennifer Tomaloff. She sent me a bunch of pictures and pretty much said, “Write whatever they make you think of.” This is one of the results.
I’ve been invited to perform at BONK! 15:

Here’s the video that resulted from this show. Didn’t realize I come off so serious. I remember feeling like I was laughing and having a fun time.
