David Michael Jackson

These poems and songs have been seen by many many thousands of people since 1997. Since then I have posted so many poems, songs and paintings that my fingers may have callouses. I have scattered them all over creation and this is an effort to finally have a page about me. People tend to find me with an individual painting, song or poem. My website, Artvilla.com is about those three subjects because they are my three loves.
I just hope my  poems and love songs bring joy and understanding to others.

Janet Kuypers’ “Time to Start the Show” 5/6/17 poetry feature @ Austin’s the Baha’i Center

    Enjoy writing links and video links from a May 6th 2017 (5/6/17, or 20170506) poetry performance of Janet Kuypers’ Austin poetry feature through “Honoring Open Mic Hosts” live at the Bahá’í Faith Center in Austin.

    Since the evening was about hosting open mics by “Honoring Open Mic Hosts”, Janet Kuypers started with a poem about going to open mics, then a poem dedicated to the previous host of the poetry open mic Janet Kuypers ran for over half a decade in Chicago, then the first and last poems Janet Kuypers read at her Chicago open mic, and then poems about the troubles and the joys of hosting a poetry open mic. Her “Time to Start the Show” show was also accompanied by music played live in a past reading of hers at 2017 Austin Rhythm Fire from 3/20/17.
