E t A l. readings for Feb. (Dino's, Thursday), March, April + Bachmann's "wall" bootleg + musics + weather journals

We're doing this now. Feb, April, and March in the works, come on if yr gonna come on, let me know, don't build me up, buttercup. Dino's redone Dino's the event space the 3rd place, its not bad ( 411 Gallatin Ave. ).

Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations on Grooveshark

First reading poster up there, hostings for Amy Wright, Lisa Dordal, Ben Burr. Then a march 'E t A l.' reading( with Deborah Bernhardt ), then one in April ( with Sean Patrick Hill ). Keep yr hands open.


The Beth Bachmann reading was phenomenal, she read from new DO NOT RISE, an even fervor, breathy-related waits, toned to a texture of trauma her work insists forces language into fracture, sometimes child-repetitions, sometimes regular repetitions, the manner in which 'wall' ( long, sectioned poem ) is composed in bracketing prose blocks with interstices, gaps, breath-space, leaping syntactic space, rhythmic evolving space, formal ingenuity toward the compressions of including the penetrating violence of violence, into the poem, that which is traumatic is by its definition obscured by self, thus poetry, becomes vehicle, is become by, to be becoming by. Excerpts from the book here. Excerpts from 'wall' under this, bootleggered.



I don't like anything at this place but this, with considerations of, authorial images, la sczhwags type american apparel nowness, but a quickness can be there, the highlander was wrong - there can be many, from all over. From new, & dark dark fucking wizard


Plus since when did Harp & Altar close? I enjoyed their space very much, it was a classy joint.


From Albert Saijo's concerned journal with the weather, private detective thereof, look at these meticulous jots, Hawaii -

"Some / too, over a lack of capacities, / much / whom on where is put / the front of the face…" / Dear Truds to Timber Journal

Three of "Dear Trud," are soon over at Timber Journal. Found in a long lost journal from the ol' pay by the pound, "Dear Trud," was the repeating address outward for the entirety of it, to whomever Trud is, I know who my Trud's are but do you know who yr Trud's are, who's yr Trud? Not sure yet if they're headed to a print issue or an online one, you know when I know, eh.

Stephen Ratcliffe had t h e s e in one of eleveneleven's some time recently past and they smash everywhere onto everything. I remember finding Distances at Logo's in Santa Cruz and reading one piece for about an hour on the carpet ground. Now his Distance pieces were the prototypes of orbit, contstellated content, ringing augment, 'synchronic repetition,' serial, processual, working at syntax under yr eyes.
