I sit with a 1917 Corona typewriter and a sign that reads, "Poems about anyone or anything". People come and make their request and I compose a poem for them. I then sign and take a photo of the poem and the "poemee" keeps the hard copy. I call this process of writing "Poeming". I've poemed near 5,000 poems over the past thirteen years. I've also invented a gorgeous wedding entertainment that no one else provides (see WEDDING page)
PS 109 is a school building built in 1898. It served as a school until 2005 (?). Operation Fightback El Barrio and Artspace teamed up to have it converted to ninety units of low income artist housing. 53,000 people applied…I got lucky.
