Hello, my name is Paul Sexton. I am a Poet and open mic host in the Dallas,Texas area. April 2003 seemed like it had a lot of poetry going on, so I decided to try to capture some of it in photos. I went to various venues around town, my regular spot, Suenos Sabrosos( The Oak Cliff Circle of Poets),some I visit occasionally, like Spoken Chaos at Lucky's ( unfortunatly now defunct), the late night reading at Bill's Music in Richardson (which some of us from the OCCP visit together as a group when we get enough coffee in us) and the Irving Poetry Society which meets once a month at a park/community center/ gallery in Irving. The Irving group also participated in a festival sponsored by their local library and school district, and we showed up and took a few photos there as well. Enjoy all of the links above, then check out the links below for the Annual Deep Ellum Poetry Festival from early April that got poetry month started.
