Felix Jung: Reading Poems at Tuesday Funk
Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to join several other talented writers at Tuesday Funk – Chicago’s Eclectic Monthly Reading Series. I had the opportunity to read several poems – something I haven’t done in a very, very long while.
It’s hard to pin down specific topics, as the poems are pretty varied and jump around in terms of subject matter. I talk a bit about astronomy, Axl Rose, God and religion, Mary Poppins, and how I imagine heavy metal drummers meet their ends. It’s all a rich tapestry.
I read a few older poems, a few of my older favorites. But I also have some newer stuff – in particular a poem I’ve never posted or read out loud before. Here’s my segment in its entirety, from the March 2016 event:
Thanks again to Andrew and Eden for the opportunity to participate. It was lovely getting in front of a crowd again, and to read words I had shuffled around in a particular order. I had an absolute blast.
