passyunk lost


the rain is wider
than the skyline,
than the eye
of a mind
of winter.

no snow but a hole-punch
disaster flurried
white circles
in an arc about your desk

& anamorphosis from a 3rd story window
let me walk fingers across the rooftops
to the liberties some 12 pop songs away

-- Kevin Varrone, from "middlefebruary" in g-point almanac: passyunk lost - which is the book I am reading tonight and recommending to you all forever.

Kevin will read at Chapterhouse this Saturday night w/ Sarah Dowling and Joanna Fuhrman.

a pair of recordings

On January 11th I read w/ Brandon Holmquest at Molly's Bookstore (it's open again, and they're selling records and dvds, too). You can listen to the recording here. Pictures and a summary here.

On January 7th I read at Blend. You can listen to the recording here.

Thanks to Greg Bem for all of this.
