I’m currently booking my performance calendar for April. If you, or anyone you know, are looking to book any spoken word performances or workshops for the month of April please let me know. Maybe your college, or a club on campus, is having a poetry jam or showcase? Maybe your high school is putting something together for national poetry month? Email BookAlexisMarie@gmail.com for questions, info or booking!

This summer I want to smile
Travelling, to your house
You to my house
anytime the heart calls
Watch kids water fight.
Breeze taken from the Caribbean.
I want sweet fruit
Cold and refreshing
To be carefree
(what day of the week is it?)
I want to share
A bottle of water
I want to give
a reason to be happy
a piece of me
blood to reveal art
Standing around, watching the sunrise
On the steps, watching the sunrise
In your bed, watching the sunrise
Before that, clear empty skies
I want the Brooklyn Bridge and Splish Splash to be closer
A sociable moon
A considerate sun
This summer let the icecream
be too cool to melt
More summer babies, less summer funerals
Pockets of cash to go and see whatever, wherever
Let this summer be the best yet
Spring’s prettier sister & Winter’s distant cousin.
Out of sixteen poets competing in the National Underground Poetry Individual Competition, only four of them were women. The final two poets in the last round were women. Quit sleeping on us. Book more women at your venues more often and other women will start attending. And reading.
The 27th person to inbox my poetry blog [I LOVE POETRY] will win a skype date with me, in which I will give you a private reading of my new piece! Do you love poetry?
I reached my fundraising goal and will be studying in Manchester, England from January 21st until June 8th! If you know of any venues in England that might be interested in booking me for a show please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
Tomorrow night at 10pm (you should definitely get there at 9pm if you want a seat) I will be hitting the stage during the Friday night poetry slam. Please come out and support!236 East 3rd Street New York, NY 10009
1. Offer the wolves your arm only from the elbow down. Leave tourniquet space. Do not offer them your calves. Do not offer them your side. Do not let them near your femoral artery, your jugular. Give them only your arm.
2. Wear chapstick when kissing the bomb.
3. Pretend you don’t know English.
