Seems like only a month between the fixings here on this bottle in the ocean out to y'all. Whatever, still the things move.
A poem, Tricky Wash, is soon over at Thin Air, the journal of Northern Arizona's MFA program, which is great because walking in a parking lot yesterday I recalled having written the thing in Arizona, or whilst passing through AZ, because 'Tricky Wash' is near Nogales, I believe on the US side, and signs indicated it thusly, as unreachable, but referenced. Thanks to ed. Eric Dovigi for the space.
The last Et Al. Poetry Reading of Spring turned out not to be the last Et Al. Poetry Reading of Spring…(!)
Having tried to get Clay Matthews, and Jan Laperle (husband wife team) out to Nashville for the better part of the year (first seen and heard at SoFest of Books a few years back), they've conceded to read alongside local, radass Vander poet Tiana Clark on June 4th (!) Also joining us that night is Nashville visual and substance artists Lindsy Davis, who just wrapped an amazing show + Artist Talk at Red Arrow Gallery.
Does seem like I'm asking every Red Arrow Gallery Artist to join us for Sauvage times but I think it's maybe a testament to the quality of their artists, curators…?
See y'all at the Art Crawl.
A good article re contemp (lit) things y'all…
