Did you know the Boog Reader 2 is out? If you don't have a hardcopy, you can read the PDF of poems by your favorite NYC poets:
This year's issue was edited by: LAURA ELRICK, BRENDA IIJIMA, DAVID A. KIRSCHENBAUM, MARK LAMOUREUX, CHRISTINA STRONG, AND RODRIGO TOSCANO.
Inside the covers, you've got some Anselm Berrigan, Lee Ann Brown, Arlo Quin, Joanna Sondheim, Anna Moschovakis, and Matvei Yankelevich, etc. (I think that my poem in this is one of the sadder poems I have ever written.)
On Sunday I had brunch with some fine poets/people. On my way there, I passed:
A crazy straw!
Brenda I., Ana B-B, and Amy K. You can actually check out Ana and Amy's work in the Boog link above (I recommend doing this right now). Note that they are all holding/wearing their spirit animals. Well, maybe they are just rubber animals from the dollar store:
(Spirit animals, from left to right: Elephant, dog, shark)
The ladies were a bit late to arrive so M and I had to entertain ourselves by taking photos of our dollar store finds:
I saw Juno this weekend. Really bad. I apologize to all the people I made see this with me.
I've started watching Deadwood. Any comments?
Don't forget that Pierre Joris, Eugene Ostashevsky, and Michael
Loughran are reading tonight at A & B. I'd really love to go but I think that I may go watch Sampson Starkweather play on the soccer team with the Strokes at the Chelsea Piers. It's a good sign when a soccer team of indie rockers has to recruit a poet to kick some ass.
