2nd Sunday @ 2: Poetry + Prose, June 9
The final gathering here at the Arts Center this season, the end of our 9th year! A small dedicated cadre of poets on this beautiful June day.
My co-host Nancy Klepsch started us off with a brand-new piece written yesterday inspired by Georgia O’Keefe, “I Believe It Was June Before I Needed Blue,” then her animated poem “My Clit Poem” in which it speaks to her.
Michelle Arthur returned to read a couple poems about being with the performer Henry Rollins back stage, “Notes on the Alien Nation,” & “Parlor Games.”
Dave DeVries talked about a fascination with horses & read about the Dutch breed “The Fabulous Friesians,” then a poem titled simply “Regret.”
Bob Sharkey read from his ongoing prose saga about the cop/spy Slocum Meeney the episodes “White Flower” & “Hight Desert.” Then I read a couple poems, & the season was over & we are off for the Summer.
But join us on the 2nd Sunday of September (the 8th) at 2PM at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, 265 River St., Troy, NY for the start of our 10th season — Free!
