Hello again. This is Mystic Babylon Open Mike Poetry Podcast broadcasting from near the Haight with as usual, for my audio podcast, two other poets. The two poets are Joanna Planteen whose pen name is Monique Marquisa de Magdelena, and the other poet is Dorothy Walters. Joanna, or Monique, as she calls herself, is going to have an all-female poetry collective with a first show Dec. 2nd. Info about this can be found at: http://www.thebeatmuseum.org , or http://www.thewordparty.com . From what I understand, it will be at the Beat Museum at 7:00 pm the aforementioned day. You can hear some of Monique’s early all-girl band at http://www.inflatableboyclams.com . She hopes to have a web site running at http://www.moniquepoet.com within a few weeks or so . Dorothy Walters has two books out. She is into Kundalini awakening, and writes about it in her books. Her poetry book is entitled: “Marrow of Flame” which are poems of a spiritual journey, and she has another book, a spiritual auto-biography, called “Unmasking the Rose” which she describes as a record of a Kundalini Initiation also with some poetry in it. She has a blog at http://kundalinisplendor.blogspot.com . Must I remind you to buy our books. My book is available from most on-line bookstores and is called: “Spirits of Bondage and Inherent Transcendence”. I probably will only read 60 or 70 of the poems online from that book which has a total of about 180 poems in it so please buy it, to read the rest of the poems. I want to publish another book of poems that I have, but I need your support so I can afford it. At least, thanks for listening. The photo is an image of Dorothy Walters.
