Not Just a Poet, but Possibly, the 5th Beatle...




I have had two of my best introductions at poetry readings lately.  

When Susan Rich mentioned to the audience that I was a "Bret Michaels impersonator" along with being an avid mountain biker and chocolate lover. 

And this intro below-- 

While nursing a strawberry margarita, Kelli Agodon saddled Lady Godiva’s horse. She once hang glided over the English Channel while writing the Harry Potter series, and dropped it down the chimney of J.K Rowling. The J in JK refers to Just. The K refers to Kelli as a thank you. Just Kelli. Remember that the next time you want to enter the Gryffindor common room and the Portrait of the Fat Lady asks for the password.

A well-known peace advocate, Kelli has folded a thousand cranes for peace while cooking thirty minute brownies in twenty minutes. She has been known to rototill the Sinai Peninsula before eating contests. She recently downed three dozen chocolate mousse pies in ten minutes while balancing on the Eiffel Tower. She has designed footwear for Elvis and garter belts for Madonna. She has mudwrestled in Belize, skim boarded in Spain and recited the Chinese alphabet backwards in one belch. 

She is the pout in Keira Knightley’s lips, the tease in Katy Perry‘s smile. She is the 5th Beatle, the 4th Cup of Tea, the 3rd turtle dove, the 2 in U2  the 1 in the One and Only Baby I Love You Uh Huh Uh Huh song lyrics tattooed on Mick Jagger’s back side. One truth: She is the 1st Poet of Kingston.

Not only are you the 5th Beatle and the 2 in U2, "... you will always be the bread and the knife,
not to mention the crystal goblet and--somehow--the wine."
