Look Who’s Coming to Vermin: Kiik Araki-Kawaguchi

VOTM: What’s the most unusual experience you’ve had at a reading?

Araki-Kawaguchi: At a reading a couple years ago I read two straight poems about dildos. Is that unusual? I don’t know, it felt pretty normal at the time.

Kiik A.K. earned a MA from UC Davis where his poetics thesis was titled THE JOY OF HUMAN SACRIFICE and a MFA from UC San Diego where his collection of counter-internment narratives was titled EVERYDAY COLONIALISM. He is currently at work on a book of poems titled HOGG BOOK. His poetry has appeared or is forthcoming in iO, Washington Square, Action Yes, CutBank and Alice Blue Review.

Come see Kiik read at 3rdSpace in San Diego on Thursday, June 9 at 7:30pm.
