On Wednesday, April 13th, The Random Tea Room & Curiosity Shop in Philly will be hosting me for the release of my new book, Travel By Haiku. Don’t miss it! There’s going to be all types performance and circus-like festivity. It’s going to be a real wonderful happening.
Hey, this is a neat surprise. Travel By Haiku is currently the “#1 New Release in Haiku & Japanese Poetry”. Now, I think this says more to how few new haiku books there are put out per day than me suddenly becoming a bestselling author, but I still appreciate the algorithm that offered up this little photo-op. Thanks everyone who grabbed a copy yesterday!
If you haven’t yet, go score one for yourself or as a gift for someone special and help me stay up there on the “hot new releases” list. You can get your copy here: http://bit.ly/TravelByHaiku
Travel By Haiku: Volumes 1-5, Still Trippin’ Across The States is a collection of haikus that I wrote over the last two years while traveling from coast to coast across the country. Follow my poetic form, Marshall Deerfield, as he drives through deserts, over mountains, past oceans, and into the setting sun. Each haiku will transport you to a place closer to our native earth.
From Sage Kohen, author of Seeds of Illumination: “Marshall Deerfield takes us beyond the horizon of hope with Travel By Haiku and reveals the wild, wonderous places (within and without) where freedom still reigns.”
Thank you to everyone who made this possible and supported me along the way! Can’t wait to take you on the road with me in reading this poetry.
THE ORGONE WURLITZER by Marshall James Kavanaugh
Here’s an erotic ode to Damien Hirst. It comes straight out of the psychedelia-infused romp, Fire. Sun. Salutation. This live reading is from the book release party at The Random Tea Room in Philadelphia last April.
Good news from a traveling writer. My first collection of short stories is now available for purchase online from Amazon. For everyone abroad who has inquired, you can now buy a copy from their partner site that does the printing here or on Amazon directly. Enjoy!
Created as a dream body to satisfy Marshall James Kavanaugh’s waking sleeping endeavors, Ma Ja Ka has been wandering across the greater northeast for the better part of a year now. And yet he still has yet to leave a sizeable enough mark on the very unreal space of the internet. Sure there has been plenty of instagram photos, some youtube videos, a few tweets, and plenty of other tags on Facebook, but as of yet there has not been a concrete enough benchmark for his omniscient presence in the collective subconscious.
A very real tweet left by Terence J Harding, a passerby on the New York City L train, following Ma Ja Ka’s live subway performance along with Mariana J. Plick, Willow Zef, and other great circus performers.
Look no more, for he now has his own twitter feed and tumblr, as well as an Instagram. You can follow him either here or here or here. Enjoy!
