She is a coveter of throw pillows.------------------------------------------ TODD CIRILLO.. was born of bastard lineage in the dark but fun-loving waters off the coast of New Orleans. He is co-founder, editor and publisher of the notorious Six Ft. Swells Press along with the pirates Julie Valin and Matt Amott (www.myspace.com/sixftswells). Cirillo is the author of three chapbooks of poetry (Early Morning Jukebox Poems, Tonight, You’re Coming Home With Us & Everybody Knows the Dice Are Loaded) and is a co-author, with Will Staple and Bill Gainer of the book, Roxy. He has performed delightfully debaucherous readings in New York City, New Orleans, San Francisco, Long Beach, Sacramento, and his current location of Grass Valley, CA. He has been asked on stage to read from Jack Kerouac's On the Road to the accompaniment of the famed musician, David Amram. Todd is also one of the originators and main proponents of the After-Hours Poetry movement. A close friend states, "You can find Todd on the barstool next to you or sailing off into the night, having just stolen your best line!" You can also see Todd performing on YouTube.
