Shay Live!



oOo, dear readers, you would have been proud of your little Fireblossom tonight. As part of a benefit event, I read some of my poetry at Affirmations, our gorgeous lesbian and gay center.


They liked me they really liked me.


I read four poems:










They laughed. They listened. They clapped and yelled. I was told I am better than the ordinary brand, by an attractive woman or two. I quite liked that part.


Today Duckburg, tomorrow New York. Or not. But I sure enjoyed it, and it was for a good cause. :-)

Hooray for Shay! I'm jealous. Now I'm out to buy one of those nifty pink knives that you have displayed here...

Talon said...

You're extraordinary, Shay! Congrats! I wish I could have been in the audience doing some yelling and clapping of my own!

Strippers would have had me on my feet.

It is a different kind of thrill isn't it to be able to see an audience "get it?"

Congrats! As Steve Martin would say, "You're a somebody! You're a somebody!"

Vesper said...

I had to read the poems first, just to see which ones you would choose for a reading. They are all wonderful - your imagination never ceases to amaze me - and I can't even say which one I like most.
Congratulations, Shay! Your success is more than deserved and not at all surprising.
xoxoxo

I am not surprised ...

Elizabeth Bradley said...

A true shameless promoter type would have somebody record them reciting said poems so you could make a U-tube video and post it on your blog!

Of course they loved you.

Sara said...

Congratulations...that takes a lot of courage. However, I agree with other people who've commented...it doesn't surprise me that they loved you.

Your poetry is pretty amazing:~)

I'm so very proud! Congrats.

(And I hope you got some digits out of the deal.)
