Tuesday evening I attended an open-mike reading of erotic literature. Going on near the end of a lengthy evening, I recited several selections from Madam Jillinghoff's Redroom Rhymes. I've received some good feedback about them from this site, but until this week, I had never shared them with a live audience -- or even a single live person. I'm happy to say they got a lot of laughs. The response was especially gratifying becasue most of the writers were excellent (a higher percentage than I find online), and some were very funny. It was humbling to be in the presence of so much talent.
I've been asked to return next month, and I've already chosen the verses I want to recite. There are more than 120 of them. I probably keep could keep going back for a year.
And BTW, I never got around to announcing that Chapter Four of The Saint Agnes Passion is now online.
