Musical Guest: Keylin Mayfield
Well, I make rhythmic, melodic sounds that kind of resemble songs with a guitar shaped box and strings. And I play anywhere I can, mostly around Snohomish and King county. You can find my sounds on Facebook and Soundcloud.
Featured Poet: Thom Davis
Thom Davis, from Tacoma, lives in Bellingham, WA now. Thom is an avid photographer and all around outdoorsy guy. He is educated in the arts of Geology and Geography, and makes his career as an Environmental Consultant – cleaning up the Earth, one dirty hole at a time.
Thom sits on the Board of Directors for poetrynight and often hosts the weekly Monday night reading. His interest in poetry began while Thom was in the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) and took a poetry class at his local community college. Thom was convinced he could write a Norse Saga in the form of a Shakespearean Sonnet. Well, he tried. Recently, Thom discovered the haven of poetrynight in Bellingham. He began attending and sharing Haiku written about the world he saw while hiking and roaming the woods of WA State. That soon turned into a Monday night ritual for Thom, and his words started to become more diverse in form and resonance. The community of poets at poetrynight helped encourage him to grow. This is the first of what will likely be many chapbooks. Look for a Sonnet and Haiku book soon.
