Desmene Statum, a poet gypsy from Alabama, has been in Dallas, Texas for 10 years. She has published two chapbooks, Coagulation and Two Fisted Whiskey Love Songs and featured in DL5, Voice of the Lunatic Fringe, Mad Swirl VI The Blue Issue. She has been influenced by Octavio Paz, Allen Ginsberg, Rumi, and Rilke. Dez takes the ride of life at full speed hoping to find the poem that saves her soul. She has performed in galleries, bars, and festivals all over DFW. Dez enjoys doing freestyle poems with her good friends and never met a cowboy she didn’t like.

Chris Zimmerly is a local poet, former open mic host, songwriter and musician. “Hootenanny Now!”

G and H are Texas natives, veteran travelers, live-word poets, and members of the sub-cult electro-pop band Sci-Fi Uterus. They were active performance poets in the pre-Slam Deep Ellum scene and collaborated with a community of multi-media artists in the late eighties’ Cowtown underground. For the last 20 years, G and H have found beat bucolic bliss in the mythical farming community of Gowanda, Colorado—home of the avant-garde juggernaut Grant R Productions.
