In "50th & Sunnyside" and "Poem of Our Good Fortune," poet and Seattle native J.W. Marshall proves that getting out of your car — whether to become a pedestrian or a bus rider — changes everything.
Marshall read the poems for the Seattle Arts and Lectures' Poetry Series. They're part of the letterpress chapbook "WORK together" (Cash Machine Press, 2014), which features new poems from both Marshall and his wife, poet Christine Deavel.
His reading was recorded on March 19 by Jack Straw Productions at A Contemporary Theatre.
