I love my new horoscope:

"CANCER (June 21-July 22): Reality is not all it's cracked up to be. Just
because millions of people suffer from the same hallucinations doesn't
mean those hallucinations are objectively true. I share Salvador Dali's
perspective: "One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we
have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of
dreams." For these reasons and many more, I don't automatically dismiss
people who live in their own fantasy worlds. Their dreamy concoctions
may be no more deluded than those of normal people, and might be far
more fun and amusing. Everything I just said is a preface for the main
point of this horoscope, Cancerian, which is to give you temporary license
to escape into the most beautiful mirage you can conjure up. Love your
fantastic visions. Let your imagination run far, far away with you."

Ok, here goes a shot in the dark. I'm in Coeur d'Alene, just across the state border from Spokane, and kinda fishing for any bite I can get regarding open mike events to read at in Washington/Idaho. Yours is the most relevant site I've been able to find. (I don't know if that's because I'm a Google idiot tonight, or if there really isn't any comprehensive list.) Throw me a bone here! I need help. What is there around here for a poet trying to get her name seen? Even a point toward someone who might know would help me.
