Recently, I got together with some of my friends to watch a UFC event on pay-per-view. Jeff Latosik and Jacob McArthur Mooney have been doing this since we were roommates, and other friends often join us. In this instance, it was Natalie Zina Walschots and David James Brock. Normally, a group of friends watching sports on TV wouldn't be out of the ordinary, but the fact that we're all poets -- not stereotypical MMA fans, I suppose -- caught the attention of writer Nathan Whitlock, and he recorded the event for the Toronto Star. The Star included a new poem of mine, "The Palace of Eternal Youth", with the article. You can read it all here.
