Readings in New York, Feb. 6 - 9
FEBRUARY 6. 7:00 PM
back at BLUESTOCKINGS with
3 fabulous performers and poets
Bluestockings Bookstore is at 172 Allen Street between Stanton and
Rivington in NYC’s Lower East Side. Belladonna* requests a $7-10 donation, which
goes to the poets, who in this case will have come from far (ENGLAND) and far
(LA) and near (NYC).
I will be reading from my Belladonna pamphlet, a long poem entitled "Surplice," which is based on Sulpicia's occasional poems from ancient Rome and also Venus in Furs. Wanda becomes the *page*, an *electric* one. The poem is part of the sequel to my new book, DaDaDa, entitled OOD: Object-Oriented Design.
I am meeting Elaine Tabios, Barry Scwabsky, and perhaps Mei Mei Berssenbrugge, some of my favorite poets I haven't met, at Bowery Poetry Club Saturday, Feb. 7, at 4 pm for the Segue reading:
Segue Series CHRISTOPHER STACKHOUSE and ELENI SIKELIANOS
