July 21 reading at "Drunk Poets Tokyo"

Mr. Edward Levinson, a haiku poet, and a photographer, invited me to participate in an open mic reading of "Drunk Poets Tokyo."

It is an event of a private poetry group hosted by Mr. Samm Bennett and Mr. Joy Waller.

Mr. Levinson and I belong to the Japan PEN club, where we got to know each other.

It was my first time taking part in this event, and it had been a while since my previous performance in Japan.

I had a great time with the participants as we were all inspired by each other's expressions. Thank you very much.
