Hosted by Fred Joiner, curator and host of the American Poetry Museum's Intersections at the Honfleur Gallery and poet-in-residence at Busboys and Poets, Shirlington. This month's feature poet is Jonathan Tucker.

Jonathan Brody Tucker was born in Washington, DC's, Southeast Women's Hospital about a decade before the internet was born. It is still too early to tell which will have a greater impact on society. Growing up in Crofton, Maryland, Jonathan began writing the terribly clichéd, sing-songy filth he calls poetry to express how he felt about the cute girls in school. Due to his extreme cowardice, he did not read his poetry in public until many years later. Some people like it, but they are a strange and varied bunch. At the University of Maryland, College Park, he founded Terpoets so he could share his whining diatribes, political propaganda, and emotional drivel with a larger community of like-minded weirdos.

HOME is on every THIRD Friday of the month at Hillyer Art Space.
