Mike Tyler's YAYLEGS

Fresh from a mud bath, your naked host Edwin Torres welcomes his equally naked guest Mike Tyler, the man who helped rebirth Spoken Word from its slumber in the early 90s with the traveling Nuyorican Poets Café Live. Mike Tyler published his first book From Alabama to California as a "share book" from Art Cannot Be Damaged Press: (If you want to keep the book, send me $20. If not, leave it somewhere.) His next book, From Colorado to Georgia was published by Carlton Arms Hotel, where he was poet-in-residence. Mike is now baring his soul through song just about every week at New York's Sidewalk Cafe, sharing acoustified stories, electric poems, and happily sad yearnings for beauty. If you love wanderlust, visit Olive Juice Music, a place dear to his heart. Then Mike and Edwin invent fractured similes of mutual memory as they give way to the equally fractured incomplete bliss of What Is This Shit?
