Up to Frisco tomorrow - PSA - Hollywood - Burbank to give a reading. They claim it’s the largest SF crowd since Yevtushenko the Russian poet. The auditorium holds 750 and they claim to be sold out. I hope they are. I get half the god damned take and at 2 bucks a head maybe I can afford a cold beer when I get back. 750 for Billy Graham ain’t cat’s turds but for poetry it’s something. o, yeh, I write poems too, kitten.
