To begin ...

As the twentieth century fades out
the nineteenth begins
it is as if nothing happened
though those who lived it thought
that everything was happening
enough to name a world for & a time
to hold it in your hand
unlimited.......the last delusion
like the perfect mask of death

Another Poet in New York, with Dates & Venues

From September 30 through December 27 I will be moving my field of operations from San Diego to New York – a temporary return to native grounds and a chance to check the possibilities of working/writing in a home away from home. I expect during this time that Poems and Poetics will continue without interruption, and my email address – as in the side bar here – will remain in effect.

There will also be a few readings and related events along the way, the following being the ones presently on tap:

Fifty year retrospective reading, Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery (Between Houston and Bleecker), with guest readers Bob Holman, Pierre Joris, Anne Waldman, Charlie Morrow, Lee Ann Brown & Tony Torn, Anne Tardos, Mark Weiss, & Demosthenes Agrafiotis, October 2, 8:00 p.m. to midnight.                   

Lunch & poetry reading, with Amish Trivedi, at the Arts Cafe, Kelly Writers House, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, October 12 at noon.

Participant, group reading with Clayton Eshleman, for Aimé Césaire’s Solar Throat Slashed, The Poetry Project, 10th Street and 2nd avenue, October 19, 8:00 p.m.
