Applause, applause. Kudos to all. I am sorry I must leave.
all of the poet's books can be purchased through the publisher - 3: A Taos Press or your local indie bookstore
The imagery and language is so strong and beautiful. Wonderful poems!
Given this subject matter, I want to recommend Olga Tokarczuk’s newest book, a novel, The Books of Jacob. The culture of gematria, Kabbalah, and the Zohar, in other words, Hasidism, are placed in a context of one sort. A little heavy on description for me, it is a very clever book.
Dale, such lush poems! Thank you.
Yes, Richard Howard!
Thank you, Dale. Wonderful poems.
Dom, amazing grace. Wonderful reading. Stained upholstery. What a notion. I love sequins. Squeaky distractions!

What a great reading by all the poets. Such strong and inspiring work.
Hardest people for me to read in. Front of are family members. I love reading to poets.
The Paris Review Redux has an In Memoriam on Richard Howard today.
I love the variety. Did each writer have their theme ahead of their writing, or was the topic discovered, say, midway?
of course. well said
Reading as a writer is very important to learning craft. I am always appreciative of strong work. It helps me grow.
Thanks for an inspiring performance!
Beautiful readings, everyone. Have a good night.
Thank you Emily. I enjoyed hearing your poems. I have one math poem, and math served the theme of the poem.
Dale, I so relate to translating image to text.
I experience what we often call “the poet’s obsession” as love.
I related translating image to text. That is how I begin a poem.
YES. Me too,
Dom actually hooked me into a cups and balls group on Facebook.
Fascinating answers about your craft, thanks!

To Dom, Poet as a Magician, poetry as an illusion?
I put them aside for later animation
Less experienced readers think persona poems are personal. That's a challenge.
Aphorism: How can I know what I know until I see what I say?
