David Trinidad Poet on Tea With Tosh

David Trinidad is a superb poet.  I feel close to his work, especially the poetry he was writing in Los Angeles during the 1980s.  I too have a thing for Girl Groups and that sort of Pop Culture that is expressed through David's work.  I often saw him read at Beyond Baroque.  Dennis Cooper at the time was doing the programming at Beyond Baroque. He had his own press, Sherwood Press, that was wonderful.  A great era in Los Angeles Poetry world at that time.  Also on the same show, we show Shirley Squid Ouchi's art performance/video "Doing The Dishes."  A powerful piece of work.
