So bummed that I had to miss reading alongside the incredible @iaoputa @samsax1 and @erikalsanchez at the @housingworksbks first-book reading in NYC last night, but also warmed/😭 to get these pics of Ife-Chudeni and sam reading poems from my book to keep me there in spirit #poetry #housingworks #gratitude

When a friend first took me and my ex-partner to the Watts Towers, about five years ago, our jaws dropped in awe at Simon Rodia's hard work and vision and resolve. This month I got to return and still could not believe what Rodia had built, using as his material discarded bottles, broken porcelain tiles, seashells, and shards of mirrors and other glass, to create these sculptures over decades of his life, by hand and without anyone's help. What amazes me maybe most of all is that after all that work, all those years in service of the towers, he simply walked away from it all. Handed the property over to a friend, whom he had believed would care for the towers, and went on his way. What a life. (Oh, this photo doesn't do the towers even a modicum of justice.) #simonrodia #wattstowers #nuestropueblo #losangeles #latergram

Honored and so excited to read at the Writers Studio at California College of the Arts, for their MFA program in Writing, tomorrow at 4:30pm (195 De Haro). Can't wait to meet the students. Free and open to the public, Bay Area. #poetry #CCA #writerstudio #californiacollegeofthearts #charifshanahan #poets #poems #intoeachroomweenterwithoutknowing #honored #gratitude

View from friends' apartment. Not photographed: my trying to be happy for them instead of burning w jealousy. Lol. #Seattle #reunions #latergram

Loved finding this little courtyard tucked-in off of Michigan Ave. #chicago #quietinthecity
