The poems of Ben Trigg -- generous shots of often cheerfully bleak whimsy served on the rocks -- can be found in his full-length collection, Kindness from a Dark God (Moon Tide Press, 2007), and several anthologies. Most Wednesday nights, the poet himself can be found co-hosting the legendary reading series, Two Idiots Peddling Poetry, at The Ugly Mug Caffé in Orange, now in its fifteenth year. In 2011, Trigg and co-host Steve Ramirez edited the anthology Don't Blame the Ugly Mug: 10 Years of 2 Idiots Peddling Poetry, containing the work of over 150 poets who have appeared in the series. Trigg, one of the organizers of the Orange County Poetry Festival, has been published in anthologies including Blue Arc West (Tebot Bach, 2007) and So Luminous the Wildflowers (Tebot Bach, 2003). He has performed in many parts of the U.S.
